Rosie's letter to authors Stellenbosch Writers Favourite books
1. How do you get paid for your work?
Until the 25th of October 2010 a new author's page was gratis. I now charge R 300, but updates are free.
This is a hobby. It was also our way to say thank you to beautiful Stellenbosch.
When we moved to Stellenbosch in 1981, we found a booklet called
Stellenbosse Galery (Haum, 1974), which introduced 100 authors who live here.
I decided to produce a modern version -
Stellenbosch Writers, presenting some 350 authors.
What you can do:
3. Why can't I have my page in Afrikaans or any other language?
My aim is to present Stellenbosch culture to non-Afrikaans speakers.
This site collects authors of all languages. All authors are invited to include their CV in English and in their own language if they can send it via e-mail.
You are also welcome to attach a link to your own web page.
4. Why can't I have my page exactly the way I want it?
We are the editors of this book. While we are doing our best to keep you happy,
we may not be able to oblige every wish of the some 600 authors on the design
and outlay of the pages.
The pages should all be approximately in the same mould and your CV should be reasonably complete. However, you are encouraged to be as individualistic as you like (after all this is saying something about you, too) and to make your text more interesting.
You are welcome to include a link to your own private and/or business page or even commission us to design a page for you.
5. Do I keep the copyright for my texts in this webpage?
You most certainly do. My sign on the base of the pages just indicates my copyright to the webdesign.
6. Is it possible to get more than one page?
Yes, at a reduced price for Stellenbosch authors. My fees
7. Why don't you write the book list in italics?
There are many different ways to write a book list, I use the simplest: title,
or just - year: title
