YOUNG WOMEN POETS (article first published : 2005-03-3)

Young Basadzi is a collective of young women who have been making waves lately on the poetry front. Led by Rosemary Mokhosi and comprising over a dozen dedicated poets, they presented their evocative and often confrontational work last month to a full house at the Joy Note in Durban’s Playhouse complex. Next month, after less than a year of existence, they will launch their debut anthology I Write during Durban’s international Time of the Writer Festival.

However, you can catch them and their book before then – at a special preview during the next meeting of the Live Poets’ Society in Durban. It takes place on March 9 at 17h30 in Adams Books Coffee Shop, Musgrave Centre.

As much of Young Basadzi’s work concerns “identity”, the evening’s theme is “Identify Yourself”. After their performance, those attending are invited to present any poems they may have which could be linked to this all-embracing subject – be it national, ethnic, gender, religious … whatever. That will be followed by a Poet Pourri session when anyone may air their work on any subject.

Entry is free and all are welcome, whether writers of poetry or not. As seating is limited, latecomers are advised to bring cushions or folding chairs. For more details phone Brett Beiles on 031 266 4762 (a/h) or 082 516 0517 or email thirdeye@3i.co.za
