About

Kwasukela Books is an isiZulu fiction publisher, based in Cape Town, South Africa. We want new stories by new writers, challenging the norms of conventional South African literature.

The name Kwasukela draws on the rich storytelling of ‘izinganekwane’ – the stories you grew up listening to. We believe that ‘izinganekwane’ are an endless source of creativity, passion, and diversity in storytelling, and never fail to capture the imagination of any audience.

isiZulu literature deserves the space to explore new stories by new writers, and Kwasukela Books wants to make that happen.

We want your words; printed, bound, and read.
