Ons Klyntji 2011

Bush Radio volunteers Toast Coetzer, Erns Grundling and Clive E Smith (co-hosts of The Unhappy Hour, Sundays 6-8 pm) are also involved in a small literary zine called Ons Klyntji. They are currently collecting fresh contributions for their next issue, due to be distributed at Oppikoppi music fest in August 2013, where they will also represent Bush Radio as DJs.

Contributions can be on any topic and in any language. When sending poetry, send us your 3 best poems only. Short stories and other articles (eg travel articles, interviews with writers or musicians etc) may not be longer than 2000 words. Photographs, cartoons, sketches and other graphics will be used in black and white and A5 size, so keep that in mind. We also accept book and CD reviews covering African artists only. Deadline for submissions is 10 June 2013. No payment is offered for using your work, but you will receive a free copy of the zine. Ons Klyntji is handed out for free, so no-one makes any money from it. We do it just because we love it! Send your work to sendusyoupoems@gmail.com – include some biographical info about yourself, and your Twitter, Facebook or website if you have.

Ons Klyntji has a long history. It was first published in 1896 and is regarded as the first fully Afrikaans magazine ever. It disappeared somewhere in the 1900s but was resurrected by anti-establishment writer and singer Koos Kombuis by the mid 1990s as a vehicle for his own and other folks’ writing. It soon became a cult zine which featured some of the most cutting edge poems, fiction and graphics of its time. By 2000 Koos passed it on to Erns Grundling and Toast Coetzer, who have nursed it along and developed it to become a multilingual magazine which aims to publish writings which no commercial publications will dare to publish. Established writers, school kids, students, punks, hip hop artists, photographers, cartoonists and graphic artists have all found a home in it for some of their most far-out offerings.
