Welcome to the Jozi Book Fair 2012!
Welcome to the Jozi Book Fair 2012!We welcome readers, writers, publishers and the broader public to participate in this year's Jozi Book Fair which will be held on 27 and 28 October 2012!
The Jozi Book Fair acknowledges that the traditional dates of the Fair have changed, and the team will communicate its new strategy to its partners in the coming weeks.
The aim of Jozi Book Fair is to promot e a culture of reading and writing through developing a literary movement that brings together readers, writers and publishers. It is also an ongoing cycle in which readers, writers and publishers assist each other in the creation of a strong and diverse reading and writing culture, necessary to consolidate democracy.
The Jozi Book Fair is designed to provide a common and mutually supportive meeting space:
To give readers the opportunity to signal to writers and publishers the stories that they are interested in.
To give emerging and established writers the encouragement to write their stories through making publishing more accessible and
to provide a space where (small and indigenous) publishers meet with authors and the public, and also provide a space in which innovative approaches to solving publishing challenges can be developed.
To provide a space where readers, writers and small publishers come together to build a literary movement that contributes to fundamental social transformation in South Africa, Africa and the world.
The registration for Jozi Book Fair 2012 will open on 1 June 2012.
Details will be available on the Jozi Book Fair website: www.jozibookfair.org.za . Please send any comments to email@example.com , or post comments on our Facebook page.
