Book Launch: How to Open the Door by Marike Beyers

How to Open the DoorThe National English Literary Museum and Modjaji Books are delighted to invite you to the Grahamstown launch of “How to Open the Door” – poems by Marike Beyers. She will be introduced by Robert Berold.

Lonely, lovely and lyrical, Marike’s poems tell a uniquely South African story in a uniquely South African voice.

“Here is a distinctive new voice in South African poetry. Marike Beyer’s writing is both simple and highly complex at the same time, delicate and tender and hard and angry. She brings her own unique perspective to the old themes of family, home and identity.” Kobus Moolman

Marike Beyers lives in Grahamstown. Her poems have appeared in New Coin, New Contrast, Loop, Ons Klyntji, Aerial and Tyhini as well as a few anthologies (The Sol Plaatje EU Poetry Anthology; The Ground’s Ear; For Rhino in a Shrinking World). She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Rhodes University. She acted as judge for the Dalro prize and the Percy Fitzpatrick Prize upon occasion. In 2011, she had a chapbook of poems, On Another Page, published by Aerial Publishing in Grahamstown.
