PUBLISHER’S DAY REPORT BACK
A GREAT EVENT... A WONDERFUL SUCCESS... AND LOTS AND LOTS OF TRAFFIC
The Publisher’s Show and Tell day on Monday 20th February was a great success. This, in spite of the chaos caused by the blackouts and traffic congestion. Our thanks go out to every one of you, publishers, illustrators and writers. We appreciated your patience and consideration.
Twelve publishers (a few with more than one representative), a book designer and over 40 writers and illustrators attended. Although the interviews started late and appointments had to be re-scheduled, everyone was able to slot in. This year saw new talent, both writing and illustrating. A number of people had to cancel because they were unable to get through the traffic. We are sorry that you had to miss out, but this will definitely be an annual event so there will always be next year.
Because of the Publisher’s Day, a number of illustrators and authors have had work accepted over the past few years. Many publishers have said that they are delighted, surprised and excited by the new work they have seen.
THE LATEST NEWS FLASH
Arts and Culture Minister Pallo Jordan has announced that South Africa's libraries are to get an R1bn funds injection over the next three years. Asked about tax exemption on books, he replied: "This has been on the backburner for a long time. Government is looking at it, but there is no decision on the matter."

We will also have books on display and we are negotiating with booksellers to have books ready to be sold.
We feel it is of the utmost importance to give local authors and illustrators a regular platform to promote the incredible talent we have in our country. Please support us. I do realise that some of you are not based in Cape Town, but it would be wonderful if you can join us.

Our hats bring joy to children
by Marjorie van Heerden
For the second year writers and illustrators brought specially-made, colourful, fun, Christmassy, fantasy hats to the SCBWI’s year-end party in 2005. The hats ranged from the outrageous, the gorgeous to the hilarious and they truly reflected the way our creative minds seem to work. Some hat-wearers felt a bit silly and others seemed to blossom, but everyone entered into the spirit of the season and had lots of fun. After our party the hats were carefully packed and delivered to the Paediatric Oncology Department of Tygerberg Hospital. Many of these little cancer patients are too ill to leave the hospital for Christmas and their “festivities” can really do with a bit of brightening up. When we walked in with the hats the nurses’ faces lit up and one immediately said. “You are the people, who sent those lovely hats last Christmas, aren’t you? Those hats really MADE our party last year! The kids loved them! Thank you. Thank you so much.”
It’s a good feeling that something we made for a laugh and for fun could go on to give so much pleasure to a small, very sick child. Thank you to all the creative hat makers and thank you to The Traveling Bookshop for the books they gave us for the children in the Oncology ward.
(For more info about the Traveling Bookshop contact A Venter at email@example.com)
Congratulations to Robin McBride who won the prize for the most imaginative hat and congratulations to Frances and Thomas Van Zyl, who won the prize for the best book character costumes. They dressed up as Angelina Ballerina and a Tiger-knight.
We would like to make the SCBWI SA newsletters a source of information.

GREAT NEWS FOR SOUTH AFRICAN CHILDREN’S BOOKS
An invitation has been extended by the SA Ambassador to Washington DC, Mrs Barbara Masekela, to the Children's Literature Research Unit (CLRU) of UNISA to compile a representative collection of South African children's books and readers from all interested SA publishers, for a comprehensive exhibition to be held at the Washington Public Library during April to coincide with Freedom Day. This exhibition may be extended into a travelling exhibition to the consulates in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
The CLRU would like to point out that the invitation to exhibit in Washington is due to the many successful exhibitions the CLRU has hosted or sent abroad since 1996 to promote South African children's books. Please refer to our website http://www.blogger.com/Local%20Settings/Temporary%20Internet%20Files/OLK53/www.childlit.org.za for a full listing of exhibitions.
We regard this as a unique marketing opportunity of our children's books and the country, and also by showing the global publishing fraternity the high standard of our publications in view of the new democratic South Africa. The Embassy has indicated that SABCTV will also be giving the exhibition media coverage during the opening function to be hosted by the Ambassador in the Library of Congress.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q: Is it true that you can use hairspray to fix soft pastel drawings? If yes – which kind?
A: Yes, it is true. Use the cheapest kind there is to fix charcoal and pastels.
Q: How do you make your own home-made scraper board?
A: Take mounting board, spray its surface evenly with white spray paint (build up the layers slowly). Use matt white, with a few layers of appliance or gloss white in between if the matt white produces too grainy an effect. Sand down sprayed board with very gloss white in between if the matt white produces too grainy an effect. Sand down sprayed board with very fine sand paper before applying the ink, especially if the spray produced a very grainy surface. When dry, coat the entire surface with a good quality black ink: Faber Castell or Rotring drawing ink. Scrape away. Experiment with different brands of spray paint to find the one that suits your style.

THE FEAR FACTOR
By Wendy Hartmann
The market is tough and illustrators struggle to find the kind of work that keeps them afloat. There are more and more illustrators out there and it is competitive. Deadlines are sometimes ridiculous. Pay is not always that good and there are people who will work for a pittance. The list goes on and on and what happens? There is a change of attitude. Standard of work, creativity and inspiration take, not second place, but possibly last. The fear factor sets in and decisions are made for all the wrong reasons.
I have to take this job – I need the money. I know it doesn’t pay well – but if I don’t take it I’m off their list. The deadline is ridiculous – but I was told there are plenty of illustrators out there who will do it.
Yes, you can undercut the market. Yes, you can do a rush job, but before you do, think carefully.
As yet there is no society to set down industry standards in South Africa. The rules, regulations and standards lie with each individual illustrator. When you do less than your best – when you submit work that is of poor quality – when you accept a job with a ridiculous deadline or payment which will affect your work – you are not just compromising yourself– you are compromising the entire industry.
Ultimately it is your decision. Nobody can tell you what to do or what not to do but you can develop a personal code of ethics. Before you make your decision, be aware of three important things; responsibility, honesty and good old business sense.
It is your responsibility to maintain the standard you set for yourself when you started. That is part of the reason why you became what you are. That standard is the foundation of good work and that standard is the stepping stone to even better work.
Honesty with publishers and editors creates a solid basis for future work. Not only does it open doors for negotiation, it becomes an educational tool where both parties can discuss and understand the industry. Publishers and editors are also under pressure for different reasons. Discussion
creates a better perspective. And, as far as good old business sense goes? You are your business. You are your own publicist, accountant, debt collector and liaison officer. When you become an illustrator, you become all of these and more. Your job is not just to illustrate. You have to advertise yourself and keep up with market trends. You have to negotiate payment terms, deadlines and deliveries. If you want to be respected and paid, you have to ensure that those rules are in place.
In other words, your business is to be as creative as you like but – be business like about it.
Negotiate the business side first and stick to your briefs and deadlines.
With a few simple, self imposed rules in place and respect for your art, you will be respected. Yes, there will always be competition, poor pay and ridiculous deadlines and yes, there will be a change of attitude, but creativity and inspiration will not be pushed to the bottom of the list. Decisions will be made for all the right reasons.
So, NO, to those of you who thought this was about a television programme. The Fear Factor is something that is a part of everyday life. It relates not only to illustration but to everything we do. Once we recognise this and acknowledge it, we are in a position to be more balanced about our decisions and our actions will become positive.

Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market News
NB Publishers have a number of imprints, including Tafelberg, Human & Rousseau, Pharos and Kwela. Each imprint has its own independent editorial staff supported by joint marketing, administrative and financial divisions. The company's core activity is publishing general books in both Afrikaans and English. These range from Afrikaans novels, light literature, English literary works, books for young adults, illustrated and mass market children's books, non fiction, including lifestyle, cookery, gardening, health, mind, body spirit, handicraft books and dictionaries.
Human & Rousseau
All manuscripts should be typed in double spacing. Please send a copy and not the original of your manuscript. Unfortunately we can not be responsible for misplaced manuscripts. We will acknowledge receipt of manuscripts and give feedback as soon as possible.
Send your manuscripts to: Human & Rousseau: Department, eg. Fiction/Nonfiction/Illustrated Nonfiction/Non illustrated Nonfiction/Children's Books, P.O. Box 5050, CAPE TOWN 8000
Manuscript submissions - Children’s Books
Local is lekker: We are willing to look at any manuscript an Author may have – as long as it has a South African (or at the very least African) connection.
Length: There are no absolute rules regarding the length of a manuscript, but common sense suggests that the younger the intended reader, the shorter the text. Submit it all in one go: If you have written a number of stories or poems, please send all of them. It just makes it so much easier for the publisher to come to a decision. And a novel cannot really be judged on the strength of a few chapters and a synopsis.
Language: We are happy to look at manuscripts in any of the official languages of the country, even though publication possibilities in certain languages are restricted.
Submissions that are not in English or Afrikaans: Please indicate the language of the submission in the covering letter and on the manuscript, and also provide a brief résumé in either English or Afrikaans. Please also indicate the age of the intended reader: toddler (1½ to 4 years), younger child (5 to 8), older child (9 to 12), teenager (13 to 15) or young adult (16 to 18).
Send only the text: It is the publisher’s prerogative to find a suitable Illustrator, if necessary, and to have illustrations made in the medium and format of his or her choice. However, if you have already had illustrations made and would like us to have a look at them, please submit photostats (two or three in colour, if necessary and the rest in black-and-white). Please do not send us any original illustrations.
Notes for the editor: We are used to reading picture book texts before they have been illustrated and to “filling in the missing bits”, but if you wish the illustrations to show something that is really not clear from the text itself, indicate this to the editor by way of a footnote or a comment in square brackets at the end of the paragraph concerned.
Feedback and guidance: We can unfortunately not undertake to provide in-depth feedback and guidance as we simply do not have the manpower.
MORE NOTES ON SUBMISSION GUIDELINES FROM TAFELBERG
Line spacing: For ease of reading, please type or print out the manuscript with adequate line spacing (one-and-a-half or double spacing, not single spacing) and on one side of the paper only. Binding is unnecessary – it is easier to read loose pages.
Numbered: Make sure that the pages are numbered.
Keep a copy: Be sure to keep a copy of your manuscript, as things often go missing in the mail. If you have the manuscript on computer, please ensure that you have it in the form of hard copy (a print-out) too, just in case your computer decides to crash.
Contact details: Make sure that you have provided all of your contact details in the covering letter. Supply an e-mail address if you have one.
Manuscript returned: If you wish to have your manuscript returned to you in the event of rejection, please state so clearly in your covering letter and enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope of suitable size. Failing this, rejected manuscripts will be destroyed.
And now sit back and wait: How long you will have to wait depends on how many manuscripts are in the queue ahead of yours, the time of year and many other factors.
As a rule, manuscripts that do not show publication potential get the thumbs-down within two to three months, but if a manuscript does show potential, it could take a very long time before a decision is finally reached. In addition to this, very few manuscripts are accepted for publication first time round. Most of the time an Author of a manuscript that shows promise has to work on the manuscript again and again – and even then the answer may in the end still be “no”.
So why still bother to write? If you’re in this for the money – forget it! Go and do something else. No sane human being would spend so much time doing something that is so difficult with so little chance of ultimate success unless he or she were really passionate about it. This is the only good reason for writing, and the only one that makes for good writing.
So you really insist? Well then, this is where you send the fruits of those long, lonely hours:

KWELA - Our Mission
To make the South Africa book culture more inclusive; to nurture and promote exciting local writing talent of established as well as of new writers; to spread a love of reading by producing books accessible and interesting to the broader community, while at the same time honoring as ultimate guidelines quality and integrity.
After initially testing the market for trade books in isiZulu and Sesotho, Kwela abandoned publishing in the indigenous African languages due to a lack of demand. For the same reason a similar decision had to be made regarding easy reading for newly literate adult readers. Kwela therefore currently focuses on three areas: literary fiction, memoirs and nonfiction with a social or cultural slant. New on the 2002 Kwela list is English poetry. All English poetry is however published in collaboration with Snailpress, who is responsible for editing and production, while Kwela shoulders the promotion and marketing. Kwela still does not publish collections of short stories by a single author. Occasionally we do put together compilations of new short stories around a specific theme of for a specific market.
English books account for 80% - 85% of the Kwela list; Afrikaans for the rest. Occasionally the same title appears simultaneously in an Afrikaans and an English edition.

INVITATION TO AUTHORS TO PARTICIPATE IN AN EXPERIMENTAL NEW FORM OF PUBLISHING
ThoughtCorp Solutions (Pty) Ltd has developed a new type of "page turner" application called Folio that allows documents to be presented on a computer screen in the same way a reader would experience a book or magazine. The reader can see two pages open in front of them and can turn pages by clicking on their edges. The main advantage of this application is that it emulates the reading experience of real books or magazines to some extent while still enabling all the advantages of the digital medium such as animation, sound, links to websites etc.
We think this form of media would be best suited to children's stories because those stories are typically short, they lend themselves to graphics, animation and sound, which are Folio's strong points and children are more likely to adopt this new medium quickly. We also feel that by emulating a book on the computer screen, children are more likely to be attracted to real books in the fullness of time, instead of playing on computers to the exclusion of reading. To give you an idea of what Folio is like please follow the link below http://www.blogger.com/Local%20Settings/Temporary%20Internet%20Files/OLK53/www.thoughtcorp.co.za/material/folio2/book_demo/ Visit us at http://www.blogger.com/Local%20Settings/Temporary%20Internet%20Files/OLK53/www.thoughtcorp.co.za

Chimurenga - call for submissions
We're inviting comic creators and graphic storytellers who have produced cutting-edge work to submit some original pieces for this issue, or excerpts from work-in-progress. We also have selected stories, essays and interviews to be "adapted", or dubbed (King Tubby-style) into comics/graphic stories. You may choose to use one of them as the basis for your submission, or simply work from your own original idea. Let us know if you're interested, so we can email some of the stories/essays available.
Estimated deadline for submissions is end of March And submissions shall be between 4-10 pages, in black and white, with one spot colour, usually blood-soaked red. It may be a series of shortish pieces or a running one. We will pay an honorary of 100USD - or the equivalent thereof - per work published. LIMITED OFFER ONLY!!! We cannot actually afford to pay a fee to contributors, and this would be a token of appreciation, for their support to our non-profit ad-free all-volunteered independent publishing outfit... Spread the word.
