Southern Comfort is one of the poets that has remained consistent in the Word N Sound Poetry League. Last year he made it into the top 5 to compete for the title Queen/King of the mic in the finale at the 5th Word N Sound International Poetry Festival. He took to the stage and his total upset victory over Xabiso Vili was both a shocking and exciting moment.
He is our next showcase artist to warm up the stage this winter.
Here’s a little taste of what to expect on the 2nd of July at the Market Theatre Lab, Bus Factory, 3 Helen Joseph Str, Newtown for the Word N Sound Poetry League show.
You have been one of the people who have been in the slam series for a long time, how did you manage to remain consistent and what inspired you to write new poems every month?
The secret to remaining consistent was simple. I didn’t have to wait for inspiration to write. I wrote because poems demand to be written, some in the form of ideas, concepts and what we experience in our daily lives.
