South African Womxn Writers – The Wrap Up!

Wow! That’s a wrap. This month has absolutely flown by and I hope that you have each found (at least) a few new books and authors that you’d like to keep track of and support. The South African book publishing industry remains quite small – a book is a bestseller with just a couple thousand copies.

Please buy South African womxn’s books, visit their websites, rate their books on GoodReads. We will all be eternally grateful.

Just a quick recap

So we’ve come to the end of our journey, but certainly not to the end of AMAZING writing by INCREDIBLE writers. Stay tuned.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any feedback and questions. You can reach me via my contact page, here.

This month’s blog is curated by Jen Thorpe.

  1. Only just discovered your blog so I missed all the posts about South African women writers. That list you put together should be more than enough to keep me reading for the next 10 years
