Bronwyn Davids

Bronwyn Karen Davids is the author of Lansdowne Dearest, a narrative non-fiction book that she wrote while participating in the JGF/ NB Publishers’ Mentorship for Emerging Writers of Fiction and Non-Fiction in 2019. The book, written from a child and then teenager’s perspective tells of her family and her community’s experience of forced removal from the 1960s through to 1981 in Lansdowne. After completing her matric at Livingstone High School in Claremont, she followed many different study and career paths before ending up at the Peninsula Technikon, Bellville where she completed her National Diploma in Journalism. From 1988 to 1992, she was a general news reporter first at The Argus and then The Cape Times. Bronwyn’s wandering years to 20 countries on six continents followed. Afterward, she spent years studying and making art before she returned to working with words – from writing in a FMCG call centre to technical writing to a stint of news reporting at Newspaper House to academic translating and transcribing, content writing, and recently a publicist. Book 2 hovers on the horizon.
