SLAM CHAMPION (article first published : 2003-10-16)

Slam poetry is performance poetry where poems are brought to life on stage. Poetry, itself maintains a culture of reading and debate about core issues that affect people in whatever sphere of life they are in. The Slam Poetry Operation Team hope to encourage people to express their feelings in a creative way in order for them to grow and understand socio-economic, political and global issues.

War of words will be the order of the day when poets battle it out at Slam poetry Champion of the year at the Transafrica Restuarant, BAT Cente on October 4 at 12h00.

The highly-charged annual event is a culmination of monthly competitions between poets who had to recite their poems in front of the audience and where one winner was chosen each month. Some of the poets like popular Keith Kunene, Patricia Chili and Zola Sobekwa have participated at this year's prestigious poetry festival, Poetry Africa.

Books and cash prizes will be handed to the winner and there is a lucky draw for the audience. The competition has proved to be a great event among poetry lovers.

Entrance is R10. For enquiries contact Nkosinathi 'Coolfire' Rhadebe on 073 351 1405.
