Emerging poets urged to get involved in 20th Poetry Africa Festival


THE Centre for Creative Arts at the University of KwaZulu-Natal Howard College campus in Durban is calling for emerging poets to take part in the 20th Poetry Africa festival as Prelude Poets.

The festival, now in its 20th edition, takes place from October 10 to 15 and brings together some of the world’s finest poets and musicians.

Four poets are wanted to take part in Poetry Africa as curtain raisers. Many poets performing in this space have gone on to be invited as festival participants in Poetry Africa and other platforms in subsequent years.

Participants will be required to audition original works with a five minute limit. Auditions will take place at the CCA on September 22 and 23.

Audition slots will be assigned by booking. To book an audition time, email your full name and contact details, with Poetry Africa Prelude Auditions in the subject title, to poetryafrica@cca-ukzn.co.za
