Johannesburg’s premier youth poetry platform – Word N Sound #PoetryLeague – returns for another month of scintillating poetry slam. At the helm of developing and unearthing new talent in the local poetry scene, Word N Sound has shown a consistent and enduring commitment to finding and nurturing South Africa’s unsung writers.
The idea for the column is to advise those new to SLAM on the best approach and the common pitfalls and also to help established SLAM practitioners to improve their skill-set and hopefully their performance in SLAMS.

The State Of The Nation Address according to WNS Poetry League Season 5 Episode 1 Top 5
What better way to kick start the 5th Season of the Word N Sound Poetry League than to launch our 1st show of the year with the reigning Queen of the WordnSound mic, Thando ‘The Poet’ Buthelezi.
Some people walk though doors, onto stages and find themselves in the middle of a boardroom and never quite leave. This is exactly what happened to these to WNS shareholders.
Kicking things off in Season 5’s first Episode of the Poetry League is the reigning Queen Of The Mic, Her Majesty, Thando Buthelezi.
