ANY POETRY NEWS? (article first published : 2000-03-18)

Vincent Marran is currently running Free Speech - A Monthly Poetry Slam in Johannesburg and has received numerous enquiries from people outside of Johannesburg wishing to participate in such an event. He intends to produce a database of events within South Africa in order to nationally promote Poetry Slams and provide a suitable location for poets throughout the country. To this end, he urgently requires information on Poetry Slams or poetry readings being held on a regular basis (not festivals or special events) within South Africa.

There are proposals underway for an Annual National Poetry Slam, which would bring together people from the various venues to participate in the competition and loudly publicise the fact that poetry is alive and flourishing in South Africa.

If you are a poet and know of such an event, or would like to start up a Monthly Slam in your area, please contact Vincent on vincent@barritt.co.za or by phone on: 083-760-0387. If possible, please provide full details such as : address and contact details of venue; who founded the event and why and how long it has been in existence; how often and when it happens; is there a fee or prize involved; what exposure has it had and any other comments or information available.
