NOWADAYZ POETS (article first published : 2007-01-28)

“A poetic fusion of young minds of mix creed, gender and race looking for a platform for expression during these troubled times of international feuds and epidemic outbreaks.” This is how Nowadayz Poets describe themselves – a group that has had regular gatherings for close on seven years.

“This is the birth spot for the SLAM poetry event that has taken poetry into the competitive platform of spoken word poetry delivered to a raving crowd of young street philosophers and aspiring writers from your traditional praise poets, to the mystics, story tellers, writers, mcees and published poets,” they add.

Poets of the Nowadays and Basadzi Young Women’s poetry circles continue to participate in their personal capacities in annual international South African poetry events such as Poetry Africa and Urban Voices.

Nowadays Poets meet in the Functions Room at the BAT Centre every Wednesday from 17h00 to 19h00.
