Bontle Senne

As a 20 year old young writer, studying nothing to do with writing at the University of Cape Town, I often wonder what the hell I’m doing. But I am one of three women writers in my family: both my mother and my sister are sustained by their writing. I have been a storyteller, in the least pretentious manner possible, for as long as I could speak and have carried that passion for story into my writing. I write about the post-apartheid, post-Rainbow Nation trip that young, middle-class South Africans are on. That’s all.
