Writing can be a lonely pursuit, with long hours hovered over notebooks and keyboards, scribbling and scratching for our lives. But when the work is ready to be shown to the world, what to do? Akwantuo was originally established as a platform for voices in Ghanaian writing, but many writers now simply post their pieces on their own blogs or social media. It’s time to break down the silos of individuality that for too long has limited the arts community and embrace collaboration and collectivity. Send links to your poetry, fiction and non-fiction that have been posted on a personal blog or social media site to have it republished on Akwantuo, building readership and the community. firstname.lastname@example.org.
