The Workshop

Self-Publishing is when the author controls the entire publishing process. This includes the design of the cover and the interior, price, distribution, marketing, and public relations. Authors can do all these activities by themselves or they may outsource these tasks. ANFASA is constantly attending to calls and emails from aspiring authors who want to know how they can get published. The self-publishing landscape has changed considerably in South Africa in the past few years as it is increasingly becoming the first choice for writers. With this growth in activity, the book sector has become flooded with titles, much of it of low quality from opportunistic publishers looking to make a quick buck. It is our role as ANFASA to provide authors with a full picture of the process of how to successfully get self-published.
