Guest Biographer Program

What you need to know before you start

It is often said that if you don’t tell your story, others will tell it for you.

The AML Guest Biography Program is an opportunity for skilled African writers to tell the stories of our artists through well-researched, well-written, and befitting biographies.

Biographies that meet our standards will be published on the subject Artist's profile page on the African Music Library.
