PADAYACHEE INVITED TO USA (article first published : 2001-06-20)

Two of Durban poet Deena Padayachee’s poems have been selected by poetry.com for the Sound of Poetry on CD and tape and three of the poems have been chosen for their book Nature's Echoes.

Deena has recently been invited to read his poetry at the 2001 International Society of Poets Summer Convention and Symposium in Washington DC. On August 17, he will be formally inducted as an International Poet of Merit and Honoured member of their Society for 2001.

“I will also receive two separate and very special awards for my poetic achievement during that weekend,” says Deena. “Of course I cannot afford to go! The Convention Registration alone is $595! But anyway, whatever happens, it is wonderful to be acknowledged for my work in the USA!”

Deena is going to try to raise sponsorship for his visit. If you can help, contact him on dpadayachee@icon.co.za
