​This is My Land
Edited by: Meg Vandermerwe, Antjie Krog and Sindiwe Magona
The University of the Western Cape’s (UWC) CREATES writing initiative launched their book This is my Land, on August 7, 2012. 

The mulitlingual (English, isiXhosa and Afrikaans) book aims to encourage the upcoming generation to be conscious of the significance of our mother tongues as they are part of our identity. UWC CREATES is a unique creative writing initiative in South African higher education that offers student writers and lecturers a rare opportunity to write and dialogue across languages and literary traditions.
Started at UWC in 2009, the programme has grown at an astonishing pace.

UWC creative writing teachers Sindiwe Magona (an accomplished motivational speaker, author, poet and playwright) and Meg Vandermerwe (a graduate of the MA Course in creative writing at the University of East Anglia and an accomplished author) worked together with writer (and former Director of the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation) Antjie Krog to compile the book
