Jozi Book fair invites writers, poets, playwrights and friends to participate in the upcoming Jozi Book Fair.

Jozi Book Fair is at it again with another fair that promises to be vibrant, topical, engaging and fun. With over 70 authors, 50 libraries and numerous study groups participating in this year’s event, Jozi Book Fair is indeed the showcase for readers, writers and small publishers.

“Would you like to read your work, launch your book, publication or newsletter or simply take part in network conversations with other writers and publishers?” reads the publicity material. “Because unknown writers hardly ever get a chance to share their work with a broader public, Jozi Book Fair invites you to participate in the 2nd Jozi Book Fair which offers all small and progressive writers, publishers, poets and illustrators with a free space to launch books, a forum to showcase their publications and work, to network, as well as the opportunity to develop alternative approaches and strategies.”

The 2nd Jozi Book Fair will be hosted at the Museum Africa, Newtown, in Johannesburg from August 7 to 9. All submissions must be accompanied by full contact details, a copy of your ID and a letter of declaration stating that the submitted work is your own original work. Please note that works submitted cannot be returned to the authors. Submissions should be e-mailed to
