About Nefertiti

THE COMPANY:

Soso Adae, L3C is a magazine and fiction workshop for the negative aesthetic, which refers to the universal body and intellect of the black imagination in Africa and its diaspora. We publish the negative aesthetic and our workshops articulate the negative aesthetic for beginning to advanced story development.

Our tagline "Beyond Imagination," refers to the need for diverse centers in literary imagination.

THE VISION:

I have always imagined Soso Adae L3C's instructional arm as a traditional subscription-based online workshop, but I begin to see the company's future as primarily tech driven, with handheld workshops for phone and tablet that advance the conversation of story while providing the right balance of technical convenience and social integration without interfering with the tactile creative space necessary for the writer doing “serious” work.

SOCIAL RELEVANCE:

In addition to providing marketable skills and a publishing solution for today's black writers, SosoAdae’s mission is relevant to the publishing industry’s present scramble for racial diversity in literature.

CANDIDATE(S):

The ideal candidate(s) will have skills necessary for advisory, sales, fundraising, team building, and cultural responsiveness; tech savvy suitable for mobile development (e-learning and magazines); and be able to visualize and implement real strategies for web scalability.

I would like for Soso Adae, L3C to have a culture that can inspire creatives from different design spaces, so I would not say that an interest in "creative writing" or reading is requisite, only the ability to inform and be informed by story.

Thanks for reading!
