ANFASA was formed as a national association especially for authors of general non-fiction works, textbooks and academic works, but it also welcomes authors of fictional works as members. Many non-fiction authors write fiction as well, and vice versa. Even more importantly, ANFASA’s programmes, and its objectives, apply broadly to all authors. ANFASA is dedicated to defending their intellectual property rights, to promoting their works and to sharing information and offering advice and expertise on writing and publishing. We call this empowering authors, and we are dedicated to this objective.
In the 16 years since it was launched, ANFASA has, among other activities, held workshops on topics such as copyright and contracts and self-publishing; has run a course on biography writing; has organised conferences; has awarded writing grants to over a hundred authors; has advised many authors by e-mail on their publishing contracts; and has lobbied for copyright legislation favourable to authors.
ANFASA’s vision is to be a member-driven association to uphold and enhance the profile and status of authors in South Africa, through advocating for the recognition of their works and protection of their rights, in collaboration and cooperation with other stakeholders in the book value chain such as publishers, booksellers and libraries.
