After so many delays occasioned by Covid-19 and the requisite upheavals around the world in 2020, and with online reading gaining huge traction in Nigeria, the Fiction Writers Group has launched JollofReads.
The online publication platform aims to pluck the glut in reading culture by publishing original African stories available for millions of online audience to read for free.
According to the founder of the Group, Oha Michael, JollofReads hopes to –
i. Be the standard reference for African stories;
ii. Help readers discover the bliss of reading by making quality and original stories accessible through online free reads;
iii. Support writers to help the continuous discovery of new breed of urban writers.
iv. Digital and physical literacy outreach and to promote a reading culture across Africa.
v. To invest in seeking and developing emerging young writers through Fiction Writers Group (FWG).
Commenting further on the reasons behind the launching of JollofReads, Michael was quoted as saying –
We believe that writers should focus more in upgrading their craft through consistent writing and creative exploration. This is because we know there are a lot of talented writers out there with no one to publish them. We want them to focus on writing while JollofReads takes care of the publishing and audience outreach.
The publishing house has also released it’s first official publication titled “JollofReads Short Stories”. The first edition short stories contains eight original stories on different genre’s from Young Adult fiction, Sci-fi, Adventures and Fantasy, Teen Stories and Girl-child power.

The second series is currently under works after the huge success of the first issue.
