Who We Are
Geko Publishing (Pty) Ltd is an independent, black-owned publishing company. Geko publishes modern, cutting-edge literature that is usually on the fringes of mainstream publishers. Geko is a traditional publisher – with interest in publishing across genres and languages. We see books as cornerstones of history. We also publish BKO Poetry & Literature Magazine.
In a period spanning nearly two decades, Geko has published South African (English and other languages) literature, including fiction, poetry and biographies by some of the country’s multi-award-winning writers and academics, culminating in over 30 titles published. In addition, Geko awards Geko Mofolo Prize for Outstanding Fiction in Sesotho, administered in South Africa.
