Online platform launched for aspiring authors
One of the publishing industry’s latest innovations – a local pre-publication writing platform called Gama❤Phile has been launched.
Gama❤Phile is a local pre-publication writing platform that makes use of technology and social media to discover and celebrate undiscovered local writing talent. Founded by Avela Gronemeyer, this is a creative outlet for aspiring authors to showcase their work and gives readers access to new stories that exist outside of mainstream literary channels.
Gronemeyer expands on her vision, “A gap exists in South Africa between writers and publishers. This tool engages authors and encourages creative writing through social media and crowd-sourced rating and ranking mechanisms. New voices are showcased, commended and connected with readers and publishers, with the broader aim of nurturing a culture of supporting local writers and engaging with local audiences.”
We've partnered with Gama❤Phile and the Pilanesberg Tourism Incubator to bring you an exciting writing competition. If you are an aspiring author and have a story to share with the world, this is the perfect platform for you. Find out more HERE
