POETRY AFRICA SCHOOL POETRY COMPETITION (article first published : 2007-09-8)

The Centre for Creative Arts (UKZN) will host the 11th Poetry Africa international poetry festival from October 1 to 6. The evening events will take place mainly at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, where poets will read and perform their poetry each evening from 19h30, with a festival finale at BAT Centre on October 6.

A major component of the festival is the schools programme which consists of school visits by participating poets and a poetry competition. Poetry Africa invites learners to submit material for the poetry competition which is held in conjunction with the festival.

Learners should submit poems by September 12, 2007, for judges to make the final selection of winners. Entries received after this date will not be accepted.

There is no particular topic for the poems and they can be written in English, Zulu or Afrikaans. Illegible entries will not be considered - poems to be typewritten or printed if possible. No more than two poems per pupil are to be submitted, with a maximum length of one A4 page per poem.

Prizes will be given for the best entries and all winners will be given complimentary tickets to attend the festival on the evening of October 5 when it is hoped they will read their poems and receive their prizes. Winning entries will be displayed in the foyer of the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre for patrons to view.

Learners wishing to be involved in this competition should submit their poems, together with their schoolís name, teacherís name, and school telephone number to the Centre for Creative Arts by no later than September 12, 2007. Entries may be hand-delivered to the Centre or faxed to 031 260 3074 or posted to Centre For Creative Arts, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, 4041.
