about

 

Literature is one of the most interesting and significant expressions of humanity. It is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary and the writer, the engineer of the human soul, does this all in solitude.

#Coinage is a writing portal dedicated to the writers who have yet to be read. The tag-line “words, life, books” encompasses all that there is to this platform from explorations of the subconscious through poetry and prose to anecdotes based on the experiences and observations of the post-democratic urbanite by numerous on-line contributors.

Apart from the on-line compositions, #Coinage is also running a book drive for various communities across South Africa and publishes a bi-annual literary magazine for new voices in South African literature.

We also promote books by featured contributors and host a range of workshops and seminars for emerging writers.
