|Welcome!||A Publishing Outfit|
The Sierra Leonean Writers Series (SLWS) was established by Mallam O. in 2001 with the publication of the English editions of his books HYBRID EYES - REFLECTIONS OF AN AFRICAN IN EUROPE and BEAUTIFUL COLOURS - REFLECTIONS ON THE PROBLEM OF RACISM.
SLWS will focus on academic, fictional, non-fictional and scientific writing by writers of Sierra Leonean origin.
Authors who approach SLWS must be aware that our primary distribution focus is Sierra Leone. However, we will collaborate with other publishers and distributors to make our books available elsewhere. Authors may also contribute to the distribution efforts of SLWS.
We do not yet have the facility to make our books available on AMAZON but we are working on this.
Since our goal is to assist writers of Sierra Leonean origin to publish their work, we are very flexible in publishing arrangements. However, we do not compromise on quality. All manuscripts submitted to SLWS must be peer-reviewed even if books have been previously published elsewhere.
All manuscripts submitted to SLWS must be reviewed and recommended by the SLWS Editorial Board. The publisher alone does not take decision on the suitability of a manuscript for publication.
Please note that unless we commission the writing of a book or we are convinced to co-finance, authors of unsolicited manuscripts must pay for the full cost of the production of their books. Please contact our Business Manager for a sample of the cost of production.
Please read our editorial and publication policies before approaching SLWS.
