Poetry Africa calls on pupils to enter for its schools competition


THE Centre for Creative Arts at the University of KwaZulu-Natal is inviting school pupils to submit their poems as part of the 20th Poetry Africa Schools Competition.

Poetry Africa is committed to nurturing a culture of reading and writing poetry, especially among the youth of KwaZulu-Natal.

Poems can be written in either English or Zulu and since there is no topic, writers have the licence to get creative. The festival will accept up to two poems per pupil. Illegible entries will not be considered.

Poems must be submitted either by hand at the Centre for Creative Arts (CCA), UKZN, Howard College Campus, Mazisi Kunene Avenue, Glenwood, Durban, 4001 or via email to schools@cca-ukzn.co.za or by fax to 031 260 3074

The deadline is September 23.
