The Big Issue #252
- 20 September to 19 October 2018
Our #BigDebate this month is publishing, self-publishing in particular. Our debaters look at the pros and cons of traditional publishing versus self-publishing. This discourse is particularly pertinent to The Big Issue and who we are as an organisation. We are a self-published magazine playing in the traditional publishing space, with a unique and innovative way of using our selling channels (from the street directly to you through hundreds of vendors).
Look out for interviews with crime novelist Irna van Zyl and author Shirmoney Rhode. They share some of the lessons they learnt the hard way and talk to us about finding your voice as a writer, and more.
Talking about books, cyclist Grant Clark share his love for childhood literacy and details of his recent cycling trip from Cairo to Cape Town to raise funds and awareness for Shine Literacy.
If you love animals as much as we do, look out for the love story between a Gardens pensioner who looks after city cats, as well as our photo essay on birds of the world.
We’ve also rounded up a variety of things to see and do to help you unwind. Don’t forget to pull out our Little Issue feature and share it with your kids. We wouldn’t want your children to miss out on any of the fun.
