2019 Annual Book Launch

It is time for our next event, which will be held on September 6th, 2019, in Durban.

We are happy to work with Ethekwini Municipality

The Dancing Pencils Literacy Development Project is a South African Not-for-Profit Organisation that has worked for 25 years to help children, particularly in deep rural areas of South Africa, to write publishable stories. The children are taught via Dancing Pencils Writing Clubs, working under trained mentors.

Dancing Pencils has helped publish more than 2000 book titles books by young and old in many languages, including English, Zulu and Xhosa.

Club members come annually, often from remote rural areas, to a large venue in Durban to launch their new anthologies. This is a day of great pride for many attendees as they present their achievements. Our National Department of Education in Pretoria endorses the work of Dancing Pencils and delegates an official to open the launch.

One of the launching anthologies by Ingwavuma schools.

The successes of these young people benefit both them personally and the country as a whole. Children trained through Dancing Pencils have gone on to be TV producers, musicians, journalists, doctors and other professionals and many credited this training for making a positive influence on them.
