Jozi Book Fair

Khanya College proudly presents the second annual Jozi Book Fair. The Jozi Book Fair is set to be an annual affair, aimed at small progressive publishers, publishers of indigenous works, independent writers and publishers with a social justice agenda. It also aims to engage mainstream publishers and distributors of literature, in an effort to build and promote a culture of reading within the South African landscape.

As a direct response to an urgent need to rebuild a progressive publishing movement on the continent the book fair aims to support indigenous language writing and publishing, as well as introduce marginalised writers to a wider audience. Several platforms are offered for writers, publishers, agents, translators and press to engage, debate, discuss and plan new projects.

The aims
• Rebuild progressive publishing movements
• Create space for networks of small publishers
• Develop a reading culture
• Profile writers and bring publishers that are on the margins
• Stimulate publishing among ngo's and social movements
• Provide information about publishing
