Poetry Africa festival, now in its 19th edition, takes place from 12 to 17 October 2015. The festival brings together some of the world’s finest poets and musicians to Durban, with artists from the African continent and beyond.
The 19th Poetry Africa is looking for four Durban’s poets to take part in Poetry Africa as curtain raisers. The programme gives the city’s poets the opportunity to showcase their work to audiences at the country’s premier poetry festival. Many poets performing in this space have gone on to be invited as festival participants in Poetry Africa and other platforms in subsequent years.
Organised by the Centre for Creative Arts (University KwaZulu-Natal), the 18th Poetry Africa is funded by the City of Durban. The Centre for Creative Arts is housed in the College of Humanities at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and is a special project of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Cheryl Potgieter.
