The Tydskrif vir Letterkunde is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal, published twice a year by the Tydskrif vir Letterkunde Association. The journal publishes peer-reviewed articles, overviews, review articles, reviews, essays, and book reviews in Afrikaans, Dutch, English and French. In 1936 the Afrikaanse Skrywerskring under the leadership of C. M. van den Heever, Abel Coetzee and others started the Jaarboek van die Afrikaanse Skrywerskring. This annual review continued until 1950 when it was transformed into a new quarterly. As from 1951 its successor, the Tydskrif vir Letterkunde, with C. M. van den Heever as its first editor, concentrated exclusively on Afrikaans Literature and appeared quarterly. In the early 1960s the Journal was briefly (for one issue) renamed Sestig -- Tydskrif vir Letterkunde – during the editorship of Abel Coetzee. In 1963 the Journal reverted to its previous title, restarting the series from vol 1, no 1. Thereafter the journal was edited successively by Coenie Rudolph, Elize Botha and Henning Pieterse.
