South African poetry publication and special offer

Carapace

Carapace is an independent poetry magazine that started in 1994 after the final closure of its predecessor, Slugnews.

The poetry magazine publishes South African and international poets. Gus Ferguson edits the magazine and often extends invitations to guest editors. There have been a number of international issues of Carapace: American, Scottish, Irish and Dutch, and at least four Afrikaans issues (Karapaks).

Clarke's Bookshop and Kyron Laboratories sponsor the Slug prize (money and a medal) for the best poem in five issues. Past winners include Tatamkhulu Afrika, Patrick Cullinan, Ingrid Jonker, Richard Murphy, Ingrid de Kok, Sujata Bhatt, Marc Glaser, Moira Lovell, Evelyn John Holtzhausen and Margo Wallace.

Although Carapace is keen to help and publish aspirant writers we also would like to believe that we are helping aspirant readers. Bearing this in mind, Carapace often includes an element of humour (normally taboo in South African verse).

We remain grateful to the poets and artists who so generously let us use their work.

Issues 55 and 56 of Carapace are due before the end of the year.

Subscription costs R150 for six issues, and as a special offer to LitNet readers anyone who subscribes or extends a subscription before the end of December will receive one of the following books free of charge:

Transfer by Ingrid de Kok
Killing Time by Arthur Attwell
So Far by Jonty Driver
I, Flying by Finuala Dowling
Stressed. Unstressed by Gus Ferguson.

Further promotions will feature different collections.

Readers should send cheques made out to Snailpress to P O Box 12020, Mill Street, 8010 with name and postal address and specify which collection they would like as an incentive gift.
