About Michael Sinkolongo

My name is Michael Sinkolongo and I like to identify primarily as a writer. However, I am a software developer by profession with over seven(7) years experience. I have worked on multiple software projects, ranging from student information systems, social networking sites to mobile applications. I will highlight some of these projects shortly.

I love to create. That is my passion and my drive. I fell in love with software development because it allows me to create. It helps me realise my dreams, especially in the area of writing. Most of my software development projects revolve around creating an enabling environment for writers to work in, showcase their work, and make a living. I am ever working to make this a reality, especially for my fellow writers in Zambia, my country.
