This international collection features inspirational works from 24 poets across 4 continents who all
have two factors in common: excellence in composing and presenting Performance Poetry, and their ties with South Africa.
“For the last 3 years South Africa’s poetry scene has seen a rebirth of poetry with young writers redefining the
art form to better suite their lived experiences.
The anthology ‘Home Is Where The Mic Is’ is the first collection of contemporary youth poetry that manages to fully capture the spirit of Spoken Word in a country as diverse and ever-changing as this.”
Foreword by Qhakaza Mbali Mthembu, co-convenor of Word N Sound, a major Jozi-based Spoken Word platform.
