Carla du Preez

Carla was born and raised in Pretoria (which is really a dorp, not a city). “6 degrees of separation” does not apply when you have lived here for close to 50 years. She's a compulsive reader of fiction and non-fiction and gatherer of morsels of trivial information. She writes for pleasure (poetry and prose) and money (plays). Member of the Pretoria Writers’ Circle and parent of two award-winning teenaged writers.

"She will hope against all hope
that her day will seem brighter
through concealer and dark glasses."

’n Brief aan elke dramajuffrou en haar selfoon

Carla du Preez SêNet-briewe 2018-11-27

"In Suid-Afrikaanse skole, op ’n skaal van 1 tot 10, is bendegeweld en puttoilette onderskeidelik ’n 10 en ’n 11. ’n  Dramajuffrou wat gedurende haar Graad 11’s se praktiese eksamen op WhatsApp kuier, score ’n 2."
