Zimkhitha Mlanzeli

Zimkhitha Mlanzeli grew up in Port Elizabeth where she started studying engineering at NMMU, but decided that wasn’t where her passion lay. While working in a call centre, she discovered the FunDza Literacy Trust¬† on Mxit, and, as a regular poetry writer, decided that she wanted to explore her writing more seriously and sent in her story which was published on the FunDza mobi site. FunDza then commissioned her to write more for the site. She now works for FunDza in a full-time capacity mentoring other aspirant writers. Her stories are very popular on the FunDza network, and she has just written her first novel, Blood Ties, as part of Cover2Cover’s Harmony High teen series.
