Stretch Class for the Imagination Workshop
2010-05-25
Working with your Life Images facilitated by Dawn Garisch “Ask not what the image means, ask what it wants.” - James Hillman, Jungian analyst The premise of this workshop is that we each have a life motif that is more or less unconscious. A motif is a distinctive idea, or theme. It derives from music and literature and other art forms, where the writer or artist elaborates on and develops a central theme. We live both the rational and symbolic aspects of our lives...

Vir Pierre oor psigoses
Wouter - 2010-05-25
Hello Pierre, Hierdie mees onlangse brief van jou verwys, en het ook al oor Kobus se "transference" issues geskryf. Dit wat jy in jou brief geskryf het is sinvol en word as korrek beskou. Die probleem is, jy kan dit 'n duisendvoudig herhaal, maar steeds sal dit afgemaak word op maniere wat glad nie as 'n gesprek deug nie. Daar word van die gelowige verwag om vir sy geloof te argumenteer en dit te verdedig, maar hierdie volskaalse ontkenning van enige eksterne argumente is 'n verskynsel wat my...

Anton en die mediese bedryf
Altruïs - 2010-05-25
Anton, Ek stem heelhartig saam met jou brief. Ek het so ruk terug ‘n brief geskryf oor die kostes van ‘n GP (iets soos R280 vir 3 minute), en Dok het heel onthuts geantwoord. Ek wil nou nie weer vir Dok vies maak nie, maar ek voel nog dieselfde. Dis te erg. Manlief het Januarie ‘n knie-operasie gehad. Minder as ‘n uur, net die kraakbeen verwyder. Die narkotiseur se rekening was net oor die R3500 – dit vir 1 uur! Nie eens die ortopediese chirurg se rekening was so...

Wat gebeur met hom wanneer hy ouer word en probeer om by die samelewing in te pas, ‘n samelewing waar hy sukkel om met ouer mans te kommunikeer?

Publikasiegeleentheid vir debuutkortverhale
2009-10-20
Publikasiegeleenthede in Afrikaans is uiters beperk. Veral vir debuutskrywers. Daar lê pragtige verhale in laaie rond wat nooit in druk sal verskyn nie. Dit is te bejammer. Selfpublikasie is ʼn uitweg. Selfs bekende skrywers wend hulle deesdae tot hierdie wyse van publikasie. Dit is ongelukkig ʼn duur en moeisame proses en nie lewensvatbaar vir alle skrywers nie. Sekwa Ditholo Uitgewers wil nou ʼn geleentheid skep om dit binne die bereik van debuutskrywers te bring. Ko-operatiewe selfpublikasie...

Romanskryf: ’n hondelewe of kat-en-muis-spel?
2009-07-15
Op die wysie van Shakespeare is “to plan or not to plan” dikwels een van die neteligste kwessies vir groentjie-romanskrywers. Gaan sit jy met jou broeisel karakters en ’n basiese idee, met volle vertroue in die genade van die muse? Of weef jy noukeurig vleisies aan jou hooftema – toneel vir toneel, hoofstuk vir hoofstuk – voordat jy dit waag om die eerste woord neer te pen? Morné Malan, tweetalige romanskrywer en kreatiewe skryfafrigter by HeadSpark, glo daar...
