National English Literary Museum, Grahamstown: The National English Literary Museum is the leading location for collections pertaining to the imaginative and creative writings in English of southern African writers. It holds unpublished manuscripts and drafts as well as proofs, diaries, and private correspondence; all genres of creative or imaginative writing published by Southern African authors: poetry, plays, novels, short stories, diaries, memoirs, journals and travelogues, including books for children; and critical matter about Southern African authors. Its website is helpful but not searchable, so accessing information about NELM’s manuscript holdings will require visiting or a detailed email inquiry. NELM staff are extremely helpful, and NELM itself is an excellent place to visit and work in. Read more...
