Sol Plaatje European Union Poetry Award
The annual award, supported by the European Union, is now in its fifth year. Named after Solomon Tshekisho Plaatje (1876– 1932), it recognises the life and vision of this highly respected political and social activist. As in previous years, Volume V of the series will anthologise the three shortlisted poems along with some 60 other poems on the longlist, which are written in an assortment of South African languages, including English, Afrikaans, Sepedi, Sesotho, Xitsonga and isiZulu.
