In Highveld’s reading studios we read literary works – classical, avante garde, towering, obscure – with the intention of honing our writing craft. I provide short biographical, critical and craft essays for each book, and guidance on our reading. We write short presentations for discussion online, including imitations and refutations of the work. Those of us who can will meet somewhere on the Highveld one evening to talk, dine and write together.

Reading studios are free of charge.

I would like to read Rosamond Lehmann, Gerald Murnane, Ivy Compton-Burnett, Bessie Head, Virginia Woolf, Patrick Chamoiseau, Eleni Sikelianos, Henry Green, Clarice Lispector and Ivan Vladislavic.
