100 Papers

by Liesl Jobson

Winner of the Ernst van Heerden Creative Writing Award

Liesl Jobson’s collection is aptly termed ‘flash fiction’ or ‘prose poems’. It comprises 100 short pieces that are beautifully impressionistic – the literary equivalent of a well-timed photograph.


Liesl Jobson was born in Durban, South Africa. Her poetry and prose has been published in journals and anthologies in South Africa and abroad. She won the People Opposing Women Abuse women’s writing poetry competition in 2005. She was also awarded a community publishing project grant from the Centre for the Book under the auspices of the National Library of South Africa in 2007. This is her debut collection which won the Ernst van Heerden Creative Writing Award for 2006 from the University of the Witwatersrand. She is a freelance writer, photographer and bassoonist.
