Thankfully, all of that is changing with the evolution of technology and social media. Writing is slowly but steadily evolving as a well-paying profession, as more and more tech-savvy writers are earning good money in exchange for their work. How?

Slot in this event!

Core questions that will be addressed in this masterclass are:

  • Is writing even profitable in these climes (i.e, Nigeria and Africa)?
  • How can I convert my digital stories, articles, essays and poems to money?
  • Technology and social media play a big role in this, you say, can you tell me how?
  • This sounds mighty good; but wait, are there people already doing this–earning well from their writing–or will I be faced with the daunting task of trailblazing?
  • Where do I start?
