KorloueNow is a platform for promoting creative thoughts through writing. It hopes to shift the attention of youths from violence as a means to an end to writing. It is an intellectual platform for developing creative ideas and thought. KorloueNow was formed in 2011 as a project with the sole aim of providing a place online, where budding writers could get their works posted and read by others, with links on Twitter and Facebook. In 2012, the focus changed from just writing, to improving the livelihood of the writers by organising competitions where there will be financial rewards, and publication of selected pieces. The goal is to create a hub for competitions spanning all the genres, and on regular basis.
