Since Naijastories.com launched in April 2010, we have become the premier online destination for reading enthusiasts and all those invested in the future of Nigerian writing. The vision of Naijastories is to promote reading of fiction, and to share an abundance of authentic Nigerian stories on the internet and make them available to a wider global audience. This is our own way of ensuring the plurality of our stories and presenting a more rounded Nigerian
We also aim to foster and promote a community spirit among young Nigerian writers, who can thereby improve their writing through getting feedback from other writers and general readers. For working with us on these goals, we want to reward our members for their time and effort. Our payment system will be based on the NS points system. This means that when you participate on the site by doing various activities or you win our regular writing contests, you obtain points. You can then exchange your points for cash. (This points for cash system ended July 2014)
