Our Mission

Although we live in a digital age wherein publishing and communications are supposedly easy, many people in Sub Saharan African still find it difficult to disseminate their ideas and visions to a larger global audience. This disenfranchisement is a handicap because it stifles creativity and initiative. Lino publishing and communications seeks to create an outlet for writers struggling to showcase their art to the world by providing a platform where authors are given the best representation and protected from exploitative practices. The provisions of publishing and communications services represent our core mission.

Lino Publishing is an empowering platform for marginalised voices especially the creative voices of women who still struggling to find an accommodating space that can nourish their inspiration without censor. We believe that every creative mind should have the opportunity to show the world their beautiful thoughts, which underscores our raison d’etre. Through this medium, our writers will have the opportunity to concentrate on their creativity without preoccupations about dissemination.

We believe that art has the power to emancipate the marginalised which is why investing in the authors becomes a priority. Our packages are author friendly and seek to create a community that inspires and encourages writers to bring their visions to fruition. We also offer communication packages in terms of corporate refresher courses and tutorials, ad production and dissemination, social media presence, virtual assistance and consultancy.


The objectives of Lino Publishing and Communications include but are not limited to the following:

• Publication and distribution of books and related merchandise through print and virtual media

• We guide our authors through the different parts of publishing from editing to proofing, formatting, illustrations and more.

• Offer communications guide to enterprises through refresher courses and tutorials, ad production and distribution as well as strategizing on future relevance.

• Media communications is part of our long term plans, to provide news and entertainment that reflects a true vision of Africa.

• Also, as a one stop shop for writers, we sell services like research assistance, promotion and marketing.

• We also have agents on board to represent and help writers get speaking fees and other related gigs.
