The African Liberty Writing Fellowship program is a year-long program designed to train young Africans interested in the academia, media, public policy, or any other critical-and-analytical-writing-related career, in opinion article writing.

 Accepted applicants will complete a five-week mandatory online course.

 The top thirty-five candidates from the five-week training will be admitted as African Liberty Writing Fellows. 

We’ve helped our fellows get featured in leading African and non-Africa media outlets. We’ve highlighted some below. You may visit our Media Hits page to see what fellows published in the last three cohorts.



Some of our fellows’ publications and mentions 

African Liberty Writing Fellowship gave me the first platform to write regularly and get paid with serious editorial guidance. I racked up bylines in national dailies, and that gave me a lot of visibility as a writer. The experience from this fellowship helped me secure another fellowship almost immediately — Ope Adetayo ’21, writes for Aljazeera, Vice, Foreign Policy, The Guardian

The African Liberty Writing Fellowship helped me understand the need to spot and isolate biases in writing. I also learned how to use data and statistics while maintaining a good tempo in my writing — Muhammed Akinyemi ’20, Sub-editor HumAngle
