Write for us

Think you have an idea that could challenge our visitors and move Lesotho forward, we want to hear about it. We’re always looking for new content and there’s no way to get new content without new authors. At times you don’t really have to wait for an idea. Just aim at bringing our visitors a fresh perspective on a topic that resonates with you. To cloud the truth, producing a piece of content takes work. We want your articles to be at best, and we’ll help you get there. It’s also worth it. Thousands of your peers (and potential employers, clients and publishers) will read your work, and also learn a lot through it- about writing, communicating your ideas, and even the topic you thought you knew so well when you started.  

What we’re looking for

  • You may submit a rough draft that we’ll polish up or a complete article. Original content gets a much higher priority and is automatically accepted.
  • Before you submit, ensure that your piece:
  • Offers a clear argument
  • Has a voice. Be bold, thought-provoking, and human.
  • Is written for the locals or an audience that’s located in Lesotho
 

What we publish

  1. Features (1,500 – 2,500 words). Rigorous content with clear illustrations.
  2. Articles (600 – 1,500 words.) Casual in tone and less-intensive posts.
  3. Mini-articles (500 – 600 words) Precise and sweet.
All submissions should be emailed to hello@selibeng.com
