Modjaji Books

@ Sunday Times Books LIVE

Modjaji Books has a new partner!

Emily BWe are delighted to introduce Emily Buchanan, who joined us in August 2014. Emily brings enthusiasm, great ideas and experience in finance and publishing. She is a recent graduate of UCT’s Creative Writing masters programme.

Modjaji Books was founded in 2007 by Colleen Higgs, who has worked with freelance specialists and young interns to build the press. Modjaji has grown into an established small feminist press with a strong list of seventy titles including novels, memoirs, short stories and poetry.

Colleen acknowledges that she would not have been able to do what she has done without the help of a great many people, including independent bookstores and booksellers, Megadigital printers, Blue Weaver Marketing, the writers, many friends, editors, illustrators and designers, media people and of course readers, who have all assisted, supported and rooted for Modjaji.

Modjaji Books hopes to maintain her practice of mentoring and publishing southern African women’s voices, and to continue to expand her authors’ readership in South Africa and in the rest of the world.
