The Rosebank Writers are a group of writers living and working in Rosebank, Cape Town. We meet once a week on Saturday at 11am at the Alma Café in Alma Road, Rosebank, and talk about our current projects, struggles, achievements and writing and publishing in general. From the onset, we have wanted to not only support one another, but also South African writers in general and to open the space we have created to other writers and readers interested in what we do. Discussions, launches, readings open to the public were always part of the plan for the group, and it gives me great pleasure to invite you to our first event on Saturday, 20 August, at 11am – at the Alma Café, of course. We wanted to celebrate Women’s Month with a discussion about mothers. The authors participating are both longlisted for the Sunday Times Literary Awards this year and have written two remarkable books about mothers. We look forward to seeing you there.
I am responding on behalf of my dad Nicholas Ellenbogen who lives in Rosebank. He is a playwright and has recently published his first book and is embarking on writing the 2nd book. He would very much like to be a part of this group if at all possible.
Dear Luke, We are meeting again tomorrow at 11am. Nicholas is most welcome to join us! Looking forward.
