AMAKHOSI Cultural Centre will from next month up to July stage poetry sessions as well as provide chanters and writers a platform to perfect their skills under a project called “Poetic Dreams”.
Amakhosi Cultural centre director Mlamuli Moyo told Southern Eye Lifestyle that the session would be held twice every month and was set for launch on March 7.
“This event is going to be held two Saturdays of every month with workshops for writers and performers. ‘Poetic Dreams’ is a gathering of poets to perform, edit poems and write on new issues. We usually launch this programme the first week of March till the end of July,” said Moyo.
He said so far 25 poets had registered for the event and they were expecting more to come forward.
“People are still registering and we will teach them how to write work that is worth publishing as well as equipping them on how to be good performers. Every talent needs guidance and that’s why we conduct these workshops,” he said.
The event has been running for more than two years and Moyo said a lot of poets had benefited from the programme.
“Poets like Slizzer, Mazilankatha, Nomhli and Mqemane have got a chance to spread their wings and we hope to produce more this time. Join leaders and pioneers in poetry. Come and get a chance to get your work published. Together we can make it,” Moyo said.
