As we get ready for the 8th International Word N Sound Festival edition of the Poetry Corner, we thought it would be great to take a look at the highlights of this year’s legendary open mic nights.
Improvisation is the art of life and when you put poets and musicians in the same room, magic is bound to happen.
In partnership with Canadian Poet Tanya Evanson and the University of Johannesburg’s Izimbongi Festival, The Word N Sound Academy will be hosting a boot camp for emerging writers and performers on the 4th and 5th of October 2018.
The Word N Sound Live Literature Market is a literature-lifestyle event where published authors are encouraged to interact with patrons and sell their titles directly to literary enthusiasts at affordable prices.
October comes alive with youth poetry and spoken word as #WNSFest8 brings together a diverse selection of local and international youth voices.
The inaugural Keorapetse Kgositsile Poetry Café will play host to a variety of powerful writers including Antjie Krog, Lebohang Masango, Lebo Mashile, Flo Mokale, Siphokazi Jonas, Diana Ferrus, Flow Wellington, Makhosazana Xaba, Katlego Shoro, Xabiso Vili, MoAfrika ‘a Mokgathi, Roche Kester and Mutle Mothibe to name a few
The Word N Sound Poetry League is certainly heating up…can you feel it? Also, how phenomenal was our introduction to Sio and her music? Then there was Sibusiso Ndebele’s showcase…a truly memorable show!
