Your stories, told to the world.

Coming August 2018


Hey, if you're reading this, chances are you have stories to tell. Stories of your life, stories of your opinions, stories from your imagination, stories you've put into poetry. We think you should tell these stories, regardless of your age and experience, regardless of content, genre and length.

At Ile Alo we believe that black stories matter. We believe in the power of storytelling and the talent of storytellers to transform our societies. So, we are crafting a beautiful, digital platform - a community specifically for the sharing of stories from people of black heritage.

So ... what are you waiting for? Your stories should have the audience they deserve. Join our community of curious minds, reading and writing our stories from Africa to the global diaspora. Fiction, poetry, politics, tech, fashion, art, life at home, life abroad - whatever your stories are, join us and tell them to the world!

We're taking pre-
launch submissions
of short stories,
poetry and articles!




Hit "join us" to let us know you're interested in sharing your stories or finding out more info. We welcome all types of writing of all lengths and genres. We'll be in contact asap.
