Robert Berold
born in 1948 in Johannesburg, has lived in the Eastern Cape for the past 20 years. He is the author of three books of poems: The Door to the River, The Fires of the Dead and Rain across a Paper Field.
From 1989 to 1999 Berold edited the poetry journal New Coin. His anthology of poems from ten years of New Coin was published in 2002 as It All Begins: poems from postliberation South Africa, and was followed by South African poets on poetry: Interviews from New Coin. He has edited 15 collections by South African poets, some of which have been published by his own poetry press, Deep South.
For most of his working life Berold has worked in rural development NGOs, assisting subsistence farmers and craftspeople. In the early 1980s, while with the rural development organisation EDA, he edited the widely-read People's Workbook, a manual of practical information for rural people. More recently he collaborated with the visionary Lesotho agriculturalist JJ Machobane on Machobane's autobiography, published in 2003 as Drive Out Hunger. He now makes a living as a freelance editor of technical and environmental books, and as a part-time teacher of creative writing.
