Are you a business looking for content solutions to accelerate your growth and boost your business?


How it works?

We are connecting all stakeholders of the industry through an automated web portal to increase talent discovery, decrease communication gap and ensure transparency. For this, we launched a localized version of Amazon’s self-publishing platform named Qissa Publishing to enable Pakistani writers to get published.

The platform enables Pakistani writers to build their readership, collect pre-orders and raise funds to do bulk printing. We also provide on-demand design, editing and marketing services.
