Small Publishers’ Catalogue 2013 – Africa an update, join us

Due to popular demand Modjaji Books is going to produce an updated “Small Publishers’ Catalogue – Africa” for 2013. We have an intern for December and January who is going to work on it. Email me if you are interested in being listed in the catalogue. Listings will cost R250 for South Africans or USD28 (via paypal) which will include one copy of the catalogue posted to you wherever you are in the world.

We will also let you have our rate card for full page or double page spread or smaller features, where you can design your own advert. Once again contact me if you are interested.

If you look at the online version of 2010 catalogue – you will see it has had over 4000 visits. We sold and distributed 500 copies of the 2010 catalogue at the Cape Town Book Fair twice, at Frankfurt, via South African book stores and by post.

What is a small publisher? It is probably a self-definition, probably a publisher who has a turnover of less than USD100K per annum. It is really independent publishing … publishing outside of the mainstream … can include self-publishers. Have a look at the 2010 catalogue. At the time we included the publishers we knew of who qualified and were in Africa. It came out of a two day colloquium in Joburg organised by Khanya College and Jozi Book Fair. Also when I worked at the Centre for the Book I produced one that was just SA small publishers, but I thought it could be wider and could include others and publishing professionals and organisations too who might like to be listed.
