If you are a writter, or desire to become one, this is the best place for you to get started.
We have tools to let you compose any form of literature, from anywhere you can access the internet, and then share your work (both drafts and final work) with friends, family and the entire planet now and in the future!
To become a writer on the NuScribes platform, you need to apply for a Scribe profile, which you get after we've gotten in-touch with you, and established exactly what kind of literature you wish to publish via this platform. To get started, send your introduction/request mail to email@example.com, and await our response, after which you'll be given credentials and a guide for how to start using your scribe profile.
If you are a publisher (traditional or electronic), and wish to talk business concerning any of our exhibited works or writers, don't hesitate to initiate the conversation. To get started, contact us with information on your particular needs, at firstname.lastname@example.org
This platform is combines new ways of publishing books, discovering writers and enjoying books in a whole new and flexible way online and offline.
The innovation introduces a self-publishing model in which authors enrolled onto the platform get to author books with simple, online editors directly on the platform, review their work, and then finally self-publish the polished or draft pieces for the entire world to read!
The entire world can browse all free and public NuScribes libraries; either reading the books directly online, or downloading portable, standard e-book formats (EPUB), for reading offline on any ebook reader software of their liking; on mobile, tablet or desktop.
NuScribes is especially aimed at a new breed of young, creative and adventurous writers, and especially with a hope to inspire many otherwise unpublished and uncelebrated talent in schools (especially girls) all across Africa, to get their voice to the whole world for Free!
Why Books? Books are immortal! So, instead of encouraging writers to focus on blogs, essays and such, we aim to inspire more writers to embrace one of the most powerful mediums of communication ever concieved by man - the book. So, though traditional publishing is out of reach for most aspiring writers, we on the otherhand aspire to not compromise on quality, without letting costs get in the way of creativity and talent exposure. We aspire to be the best and most affordable publishing service any writer will ever be capable of accessing, anywhere!
We also aspire to inspire more africans to read and write constructive books, not just online, but offline as well, as a more progressive and recreational means to spend time - in the process, nurturing and inspiring the next generation of eminent african intellectuals and scholars.
Africa's greatest problems are never going to be solved by anyone not African. Africa's greatest problems have nothing to do with money, the lack of housing or with the lack of fancy material comforts or the failure to catch up with western materialistic dreams. The problems of Africa start with our spirit - we have sustained deep wounds to the core of Who We Are, we have lost grasp of Who We Are, we now suffer, because we fear Who We Are! It's a spiritual problem first, then intellectual, and the rest readily follows.
FIRST, WE NEED TO REDISCOVER, WHO WE ARE.
Africa Needs Spiritual Healing - not with the help of Christianity, Islam or any other "foreign" faith, but by the conscious application and development of our own native and derivative spiritual systems. Spirituality, used wisely and consciously, is to be the single most powerful tool for restoring the African Mind and Spirit, to its former glory and then beyond.
This isn't an ordinary book, and it might also not be for the faint of heart. But any African is very likely to readily find solace herein, and glean from it the sort of wisdom and power that would most transform their lives, empower and liberate them - in whatever way that might be.
It's not just text either. It's a collection of material collected from many places, that are meant to approach or shine light on the matter of African Spirituality, from many contexts, and using different medium; word of mouth, video, music, text, images and more. Enjoy, and be touched - right now!

This brief essay is written in defense of Witchcraft (not just African Witchcraft), and any other apparently “primitive”, “repulsive”, “uncivilized”, “noninstitutionalized” forms of Magick and Spirituality, especially, as explored and practiced by apparently “primitive” cultures, some consciously deviant, free-thinking and or otherwise curious human beings in our day and time. These systems of faith have been under attack, in the face of mainstream, popular and predominantly western systems –the Abrahamic faiths being the worst culprits, and yet, to many of those who engage in them, especially we as native Africans still in touch with our ancient, collective unconscious, they hold the same or even more potency than what mainstream systems can offer.
This essay is not an attack on mainstream faiths, but is instead an exploration of the principles that might help see to a more harmonious, more liberal and more progressive co-existence of the many faiths and spiritual systems – old and new; how and why we need to embrace a bold new world, in which spiritual diversity is not only tolerated, but greatly encouraged, without fear and without favor.
