Spring Fever at FunDza!

A little birdie chirped in our ear yesterday that the folks over at FunDza are running a sweet competition!

But, before we tell you how you can win a Samsung Galaxy Pocket handset, let’s tell you what FunDza is…

FunDza isn’t just another platform for reading books on mobile devices – it’s so much more. By combining fun, reading and a truly South African perspective, FunDza exists as a developmental platform that works to grow communities of readers through their mobi network and develop young writers. The team at FunDza lives to help South Africans fall in love with reading and reap the benefits of expanding their horizons.




And, as for helping to develop young writers, the FunDza Fans section is wholly devoted to showcasing young writing talent. Coupled with the FunDza Write4Life Workshops, the team helps small groups of aspirant writers to hone their skills and write for large audiences.

With almost 200 stories available on the FunDza app, alongside more than 500 articles and nearly 150 blog posts, FunDza fans spend nearly 60 thousand hours a month being entertained by the written word (according to a July 2014 statistic supplied to us by Mxit).

So, what’s stopping you?  Get reading on FunDza and may even write a story or two!

If you’d like to enter to win the Samsung Galaxy Pocket cellphone, simply visit the competition page here for details or download Mxit, add the FunDza app and share it, by using the “Share with Friends” function.

This competition closes on 16 October 2014 and is run by FunDza on Mxit.
