Are you a budding writer? If so, you can get published on FunDza in the Fanz section if your writing is good enough and fits within our criteria.
We publish: poetry, essays and short stories. Importantly, we cannot publish stories that are longer than 10,000 words. Remember you can ONLY submit your OWN ORIGINAL work. Please do not send us writing that is not your own as it will be removed from our site, and you will be blacklisted as a FunDza Fanz writer.
We edit all the work and will reject submissions if they are too long or if they are not sufficiently well written. Remember to check your spelling, grammar and paragraphing before sending it to us – the cleaner your text, the faster we can edit it!
Send it to us in one of the following ways:
1. CLICK HERE to submit it online (NB: This will take you OFF the fundza.mobi portal)
2. By email to: email@example.com
3. By fax to: 086 619 7713
4. By post to: FunDza, “FunDza Fanz” entry, 85 Main Road, Muizenberg, 7945
When sending us your work please also include the following information:
1. Your full name
2. Your contact details: email address and cellphone number
3. Whether you have had work published on fundza.mobi previously
4. Whether you have an author profile page on fundza.mobi – if you do, please send us the link or the name that your work appears under (this will help us to make sure that your work is correctly linked)
5. What language your story is written in (specifically if it is not in English).
If you don’t yet have an author profile page but would like one, then send us your biography. This should include: your age and gender, something about what you’re doing with your life at the moment, and something that tells readers about you personally. And, if you’d like to have it published, send us a picture too!
If you have a question about submitting your work, please email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
