Storify Africa is a narrative change and storytelling initiative housed within ANF. We partner with organisations who want to communicate and amplify the issues they care about on the continent through stories that center the voices and perspectives of those they serve.
The Storify Africa Fellowship trains, supports and builds the capacity of young and emerging African storytellers to tell those stories. In doing so, Fellows help organisations shift entrenched stereotypes, and highlight their impact in a way that avoids reinforcing damaging narratives about Africa.
Each cohort of Fellows is assigned to a specific organisation and topic area, and will receive training in best practice feature writing techniques and tools to dig deep into the relevant issues. Fellows have full editorial independence in producing multimedia stories, including written, video, and photographic entries. They also receive regular editorial support and guidance in developing, editing and fact checking stories.
Stories produced by the Fellows will be published and disseminated through our story agency, bird, and our media network, with full bylines. Fellows also join a large and growing network of narrative-shifting journalists and artists across the continent.
