A twenty one year old Blantyre based female writer Juliet Miriam Neba is appealing to well wishers to lend her a helping hand to publish children’s book she has written.
Speaking in an interview with this reporter, Neba who was 2018 second placed winner of MAWU/FMB (now First Capital Bank) Short story competition, said the book is almost ready in as far as writing is concerned but financial setback is letting her down to implement her project hence calling for monetary support.
“I want to publish children’s book but self publishing is very expensive. Therefore, I cannot manage on my own. So I am asking well wishers like individuals, organisations and companies to come forward to support my project,” said Neba.
Neba, who was also the 2015 runner up of religious authors competition organised by Malawi Writers Union (MAWU), said most of the times it (the publication) costs K600, 000 and above.
She said the publication will be done soon after the funds are sourced.
