Dryad Press has received recognition and support from various organisations, which we gratefully acknowledge. This support is both encouraging and invaluable to our ongoing work and commitment to promoting and publishing the best of South African poetry. We thank the National Arts Council, The Khula Cape Foundation and The South African Book Development Council for their generous support.

Khula Cape Foundation (KCF)

In May 2023, Dryad Press was delighted to be the recipient of an award from the Khula Cape Foundation, to be applied toward the publication of its forthcoming publication of October 2023, earth-circuit, by debut poet Iyra Maharaj. We thank the KCF for their support of this collection, for their generosity and for the confidence they have shown in our press.

National Arts Council

Dryad Press is supported by the Government of South Africa through the National Arts Council of South Africa (an Agency of the Department of Arts & Culture), whose generous assistance is gratefully acknowledged.

South African Book Development Council

Dryad Press is also the recipient of a subsidy awarded to it by the South African Book Development Council (SBDC) and this has enabled us to attend an invaluable series of workshops on an array of subjects including Digital Marketing, E-Book Conversion, Cover Design, the Complexities of Bookselling and others. We extend our thanks to the SBDC for the confidence they have shown in our business and for their generous advice and support.
