Celebrate Junkets Publishers' 10th Anniversary and Help Publish a Playscript
Junkets Publisher is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a brand new initiative that allows theatre lovers to help bring more brand new South African plays from the stage to the page.
A couple of years ago, Junkets published a highly successful series of five new plays by new emerging playwrights. The "New Voices" series included Sinethemba Twani's THE BENEFICIARY, Anele Rusi's ISYSTEM, Christo Davids and Jody J Abrahams's BULLETS OVER BISHOP LAVIS, Philip Rademeyer's THE VIEW and Khayelihle Dom Gumede's CREPUSCULE.
With a number of new plays waiting to be published and no funding for them to be printed, Junkets has come up with a plan that can see these play texts appear on bookshelves around the country, in public libraries and in schools. Options include sponsoring a playscript for R8 000, jointly sponsoring a playscript with one other sponsor for R4 000 each or sponsoring pages of a playscript for R100 each. All sponsorships will be acknowledged on the imprint page of the books.
In an appeal to help Junkets celebrate their tenth anniversary, this independent publishing company hopes that this idea will spark off a flame in the fertile and febrile imaginations of theatre lovers everywhere. For sponsorship forms or further information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
