Tania van Schalkwyk Latest


‘Tania van Schalkwyk’s poems are warm, sensuous memories that often shock and surprise at the same time … They are not just on inner space, but are poems of place, as they move from islands to the veld, from cities to the desert.’
– Lindsey Collen, author of The Rape of Sita, Mutiny and Boy, and twice winner of the Commonwealth Writers Prize, Africa.

‘It is the special gift of Tania van Schalkwyk’s poems to translate into memorable speech a life which, given its diverse origins, might well have been “lost in translation”.’
– Stephen Watson, Professor of English, University of Cape Town, and author of Return of the Moon, Presence of the Earth, and The Other City.

Tania van Schalkwyk’s debut collection, Hyphen was published by the UCT Writer’s Series in July 2009.
