South African writers on writing

South African writers on writing is a great place to visit on the Live Writing website. So far, nine writers are featured there, and I hope to see this list grow. If you’d like to send me your take on writing please let me know via email (I think the best would be to use my home email:

I’ve purposely kept the topic broad – don’t want to tie people down to a description of writing routines and rituals (if you’re anything like me those don’t exist in your life). So – the joys, the highs, the lows, the advantages of being a writer in south Africa, the disadvantages, what it’s like to write for a living, some good how-to-write tips, your writing space, something funny, something poignant – whatever you feel moved to write!

I’ll be posting these regularly on BOOK SA – over the next weeks, months and years I hope!

The first writer featured is BOOK SA’s very own and very dear Richard de Nooy.

PS If you know of anyone who’d like to be featured please do let me know.
