South Africa has an abundance of writing talent and the current era shows a surge in the publication and celebration of a wider breadth of indigenous authors and literature.
During Heritage month, September 2018 and beyond, the SABF, as a platform, is committed to celebrating much of this cultural wealth and our writing legacies.
We are proud and inspired by the extraordinary breadth of talent we have, from our young, emerging to our iconic writers.
