We often get requests about ways to engage with Sesotho online, stay connected to literary news, and publish short stories, poetry, novels and visual art. We are not able to take on every project pitched to us so we created this page primarily as a collection of resources for our Lesotho audience to advance their creative writing and storytelling. We wish everyone great success with your creative projects!
