Every year, we look back at some of the most moving works for the Perfect Poem Award and deciding on a winner is never easy which is why we need your help in determining who should walk away with this honour at the 2018 on 2 March.
We started the year on an amazing note, at the Market Theatre Lab. Congratulations to all the winners for 2017’s WNS Awards.
Of course there is no such thing as a “Perfect Poem” but it doesn’t hurt to honour poems that come pretty close.
When I heard that Kojo Baffoe was going to be hosting a Live Poetry Show on his popular Kaya FM radio talk show, Life With Kojo Baffoe, I just had to catch up with the lost poet!
An active participant in the Poetry/Spoken Word space from the time before it was cool or on TV and Radio and in Theaters, Kojo takes us through his journey and gets us amped for his show on Kaya FM this Thursday, 23rd February 2017.
I fall in love with words a little more with each experiment. Everything I had at the time, went into this body of work.
We’ve seen the most legendary poems on our stage and in the spirit of honouring the excellence in our craft, we salute these gems with a Perfect Poem Award.
