WinterABC2021 is a month-long storytelling festival commencing on 1 June 2021. We are inviting all African bloggers to create content for the 22 days leading to 30 June 2021, save for the weekends which are reserved for resting, and networking. Read more about WinterABC here.
This year is different…
Unlike the past 2 years where we have shared 22 Topics, WinterABC2021 has weekly themes to guide your content creation! This is so that you do not feel excluded nor limited as a result of topics that may not align with your site’s objectives. Adopt the theme as your inspiration, create content that aligns with your site, one post per day for the whole month of June excluding weekends! This Festival is open to all Africans (Blogs, Podcasts and Vlogs)
1- 4 June 2021
|The past year has been difficult for everyone, but it affected creatives differently with the lockdowns and all. Use this week to share stories about the creative life, showcase the people, the struggles opportunities, and much more. Remember

7-11 June 2021
|We all have that something we wish the world around us could pause and reflect on, to bring change and make the world better. Tell us stories about your world with a focus on the keyword “advocacy” Could be mental Health, LGBTQI, or the way foreign aid is developing Africa. Is it? Maybe you want to talk about why we should blog; the list is endless!
|Business & Tech Week
14-18 June 2021
|Remember that brand you have always wanted to work for? That worst customer experience you once had? Don’t forget what Tech has done to your world.

Take us on a ride of stories related to everything fashion and culture during this week!
