Om jouself in jou storie in te skryf: Die bekendstelling van Skool
Bibi Slippers - 2011-09-08
Tussen Stellenbosch en Wellington eet Bibi Slippers ’n hele pakkie Boudoir-beskuitjies agter die stuurwiel van haar middelklas motor op. Sy vloek verskeie ander padgebruikers wat die basiese beginsels van motorbestuur vergeet sodra ’n ligte reënbui uitsak. Dis lentedag, maar wie ook al die weer moes opkommandeer, het duidelik nie die omsendbrief gekry nie (... seker agter in die oudste en enigste se huiswerkboek bly lê). Bibi is uitgestres, want sy moet foto’s gaan neem...

Women writing for women during Women’s Month III
Arja Salafranca - 2011-08-30
I’ve read two enormously different, but equally moving books in the past weeks – both of which reflect and affirm what I wish for women this month, and in particular women writers. The first was Reclaiming the L-Word: Sappho’s Daughters Out in Africa, edited by Alleyn Diesel (Modjaji Books 2011) and the second was Julia Cameron’s autobiography, Floor Sample: A Creative Memoir (Cameron of The Artist’s Way fame). The same week I was reading Reclaiming the L-Word I was...

Allan Kayle’s debut novel, A Match for Doctor Koekentapp, is a bawdy, comic portrayal of a Jewish community in the north-eastern suburbs of Johannesburg.

Hoogty – Tydsaam, maar met sorg en wins
Jeanette Ferreira - 2011-08-23
Hoogty E Kotze Uitgewer: Kwela ISBN: 9780795703140 Prys: R210.95 Klik hier en koop Hoogty nou van Kalahari.net! Kotze se tweede roman ontvou tydsaam – maar met soveel sorg en wins dat dit ’n genoeglike ervaring is. In haar eerste roman, Toring se baai, het soveel karakters gefigureer dat dit soms terugblaai gekos het om ’n karakter te identifiseer. By die lees van Hoogty is dit duidelik dat Kotze hierdie probleem agtergelaat het. Hierdie roman handel hoofsaaklik oor Helena...

Writer: Sally Partridge Publisher: Human & Rousseau ISBN: 9780798155441 Buy Dark Poppy’s Demise from Kalahari.net! It is a common complaint – from teachers to academics to the man on the street – that children simply don’t read anymore. While this might very well be true, authors such as Sally Partridge have found a strong and receptive audience writing under the rubric of Young Adult Fiction. After writing the critically acclaimed The Goblet Club in 2007, Partridge...

Die siklus van die lewe en hergeboorte word binne die Boeddhistiese tradisie samsara genoem. Dit is letterlik die vloei van die lewe – geboorte, lewe, dood en reïnkarnasie of hergeboorte. Dit verwys ook na die aanhoudende, maar toevallige, stroom van passie, begeerte, emosie en ervaring. Die effense lyding wat met die lewe gepaardgaan. Die Jakkalsdans...

Untitled Document Caroline Smart, voice coach (speech), actress, director, arts journalist and theatre/dance judge. No progress can be made in any field by being dictatorial, offensive or patronising. The quality of communication is immeasurable and I would urge every woman to empower herself with this skill – to gain the capacity to teach, inform, criticise or analyse in a way that is positive rather than negative. Trish Holdengarde, strategic business intuitive, intuitive coach and businesswoman...

HJ Golakai’s debut crime thriller, The Lazarus Effect, combines the best elements of genre writing with a more subtle exploration of the fate of missing children in Cape Town.

Big Book Chain Chat #78 Young Adult Fiction: Character, character, character (but think again if you’d like to get published)
Naomi Meyer - 2011-08-17
Untitled Document Maya Fowler, SA Partridge and Izak de Vries all recently supplied this forum with a wealth of thoughts regarding Young Adult Fiction. Fowler and Partridge respectively wrote about the aspects of pop culture in this genre and De Vries questioned the need for the existence of a distinction between young adult fiction and adult fiction. All three contributions are stimulating material for any reader, regardless of their interest in young adult fiction per se. With regard to De Vries’s...

Koop-’n-Afrikaanse-boek-dag: Watter Afrikaanse boek het jou skryfwerk inspireer
Helena Gunter - 2011-08-12
Watter Afrikaanse boek het jou skryfwerk die meeste beïnvloed of geïnspireer, en hoekom? Missionaris deur Elsa Joubert en Verkenning deur Karel Schoeman het my bewus gemaak van die uitwerking wat Europese kolonisasie op die vasteland van Afrika het. Ek het beide boeke destyds gelees as ironiese kommentaar op die sogenaamde voorspoed en vooruitgang wat Westerse kerstening en beskawing na Afrika gebring het. Die ontheemding, verstrooiing en ontmensliking van die destydse inheemse...

Annemari Coetser - 2011-08-12
Watter Afrikaanse boek het jou skryfwerk die meeste beïnvloed of geïnspireer, en hoekom? Eish ... Dalk die eerste Afrikaanse boek wat ek as kind in my hande gehou het? Miskien Sus en Daan? Die Afrikaanse Kinderensiklopedie? Geen enkele skrywer kan aanspreeklik gehou word vir hierdie obsessie waaraan ek gelukkig ly nie. Dalk was dit ’n greep uit Langenhoven se Versamelde Werke of ’n knypie uit FA Venter se boeke wat my lees- en skryflus aangewakker het. Miskien het Eitemalof...

Gerrit Rautenbach - 2011-08-12
Watter Afrikaanse boek het jou skryfwerk die meeste beïnvloed of geïnspireer, en hoekom? Ag nee toe, julle kan dit mos nie aan ’n mens doen nie! Een boek? Ek kan nie eers net een skrywer uitsonder nie. Ek lees dan nog my hele lewe lank meer as een boek op ’n slag. Maar in my vormingsjare het ek PJ Schoeman, PH Nortje en Doc Immelman raakgelees. En daardeur het ek reis in woordvorm ontdek. Die magiese van nuwe bestemmings. En die stories daaroor. Ek wou ook eendag sulke...

Anoeschka von Meck - 2011-08-12
Watter Afrikaanse boek het jou skryfwerk die meeste beïnvloed of geïnspireer, en hoekom? Sonder om te diep te dink, sou ek sê Alba Bouwer se Abdoltjie. Dit het op my as kind en selfs as grootmens 'n magiese impak omdat dit 'n eenvoudige dog egte wêreld skep waarin die fantasie-elemente net so natuurlik soos die res van die storie aangebied word. Teen die tyd dat die storie klaarmaak, is jy saam op daai donkiekarretjie, met die maan wat soos 'n sny pampoen oor jou kop...

Zandra Bezuidenhout - 2011-08-12
Watter Afrikaanse boek het jou skryfwerk die meeste beïnvloed of geïnspireer, en hoekom? NP Van Wyk Louw se bundel Tristia het my kop finaal in die rigting van die poësie gedraai. DJ Opperman het dié bundel met ons behandel en ek het begin verstaan wat groot poësie is, en wat dit kan doen. Tristia bly vir my 'n ykpunt. Al lyk die hedendaagse digkuns heelwat anders, lees ek steeds gedigte in die hoop dat dit 'n Tristia-ervaring sal bring; daardie duiselende oomblik...

Malene Breytenbach - 2011-08-12
Watter Afrikaanse boek het jou skryfwerk die meeste beïnvloed of geïnspireer, en hoekom? Ek kan nie slegs een Afrikaanse boek uitsonder wat my geïnspireer of beïnvloed het nie. Die werk van sekere skrywers het dit kollektief gedoen. Aanvanklik het ek my verbeel ek kan nie eintlik in Afrikaans skryf nie, maar dit was ’n uitdaging. Ek het begin deur ’n romanse in Afrikaans te pleeg en dit is gepubliseer. Toenemend agtergekom ek kan dit doen, my taal verbeter en...

Women writing for women during Women’s Month I
Andie Miller - 2011-08-11
Untitled Document Statistics show that women and children (especially female children) in South Africa endure more abuse of human rights than any other individuals in this country. Despite the lofty maxims of our Constitution proclaiming equal rights for women, giving them respect and allowing them to be as safe as their male counterparts seems like a far-off dream to many women in this country. Have we really come so far from the 1800s when philosophers like Jean Jacques Rousseau declared that...

Big Book Chain Chat #77 Young Adult Fiction: What Makes YA Fiction YA?
Lauri Kubuitsile - 2011-08-11
Untitled Document As a writer of books for children and young adults I’ve read with interest the recent discussions in the South African book world about young adult fiction. Maya Fowler and Sally Partridge both ask if timely, trendy references are needed to make young adult fiction pertinent to that generation. Both of them come to the conclusion that no, they are not, and I agree. It reminded me of a session I attended at the Cape Town Book Fair, where British YA writer Kevin Brooks was...

Big Book Chain Chat #76 Young Adult Fiction: “Youth novels” are unlikely to ensure a comfortable retirement home for their creators
Derick van der Walt - 2011-08-11
Untitled Document Pondering the concept youth novel during the past few years I have been amazed to discover that nobody really knows exactly what the concept entails. People really don’t. Not the publishers, and certainly not the teachers who are responsible for cultivating the dying art of reading books among the people who will, in future, make watershed decisions about global warming, the classical concept of democracy and how to feed the poor. (And, of course, how much they would be...

Big Book Chain Chat #75 Young Adult Fiction: Write for the reader, not the age
Carina Diedericks-Hugo - 2011-08-11
Untitled Document It is with much delight that I have been following the discussions on books for young people. The genre seldom enjoys lively debate on the intricacies of writing for a market that is harder to pinpoint than Malema’s finances. I have been in the business for ten years and have laboured through 16 of my own YA books. As a publisher I have published more than 300 books for children and YAs. In fact, I have the honour of being able to claim the title as Sally Partridge’s...

Big Book Chain Chat #74 Young Adult Fiction: Give us a good story!
Izak de Vries - 2011-08-10
Untitled Document This forum has recently published two thought-provoking articles on writing for young adults by two authors of that genre. The first was by Maya Fowler (“Some thoughts on writing youth novels”) and the more recent one by SA Partridge (“Pop culture and context in young adult fiction”). Both asked, and addressed, the question of pop art in young adult fiction. A summary of their views will not do justice to them, so I urge the reader to read their respective...

SA Partridge - 2011-08-10
Untitled Document I came across fellow youth writer Maya Fowler’s piece on writing for youth (#25 Some thoughts on writing youth novels) and she made some very interesting points about pop culture: I’m not keen to populate my fiction with Hannah Montana-type characters or references to Jay-Z and the gang. But one can’t help feeling you should, just to get through … By adding that much of pop culture, mightn’t one overpopulate the work with detail in the same way...

Poetry: South African women writing their bodies
Gillian Schutte - 2011-08-10
Untitled Document There has been a proliferation of poetry coming out of South Africa over the past few years – and much of this poetry has been scribed by women writing their bodies. From the wants and needs of their vaginas to the conflicting emotions that a period may bring on, to the inner stirrings of desire and lust – women are writing it all down and lots of it is getting published. Says award-winning poet Arja Salafranca: “I think some of this has been due to the really...
