Who writes what for whom? An authors’ profile of Afrikaans children’s and youth prose (fiction) 1990-2001

In this article a profile of authors in the production category Afrikaans children’s and youth prose (fiction) for the period 1990-2001 is compiled according to selected categories. The profile attempts to determine whether trends can be identified and statements and opinions of researchers with regard to this production category be corroborated by inferences drawn from this profile. Among others, the article addresses issues such as the age and gender of authors, the relation between authors and publishers and the influences of prices and awards on the publishing and writing patterns in this production category. It was found that a statistical analysis of authors involved in this publication category corroborated perceptions and findings of researchers in the field and can also identify and predict trends and problems.
