WRITING FROM PRISON (article first published : 2005-04-4)

The 8th Time of the Writer International Festival of Writers will take place from April 4 to 9 2005, bringing together an impressive array of writers from Africa and around the world.

The Prison Creative Writing Project held at Westville Prison, one of the features of the festival, has developed significantly over the past four years of its existence. Organised in partnership with the University of KwaZulu-Natalís Creative Writing Department, the workshops are co-ordinated by the poet and writer, Kobus Moolman. Workshop assistants are Brian Fulela and Bandile Gumbi.

The programme has received invaluable support from Poobhan Pillay and Dominic Zulu of the Westville Prison Education and Training Department who see the creative writing workshops as being of enormous benefit to prisoners who show an interest in creative expression. A series of three preliminary workshops are held prior to Time of the Writer and one workshop is held with festival writers. This year, Hari Kunzru, Ncamisile Makhambeni and DBZ Ntuli will participate in the prison programme.

For further information call the Centre for Creative Arts, University of KwaZulu Natal on 031 260 2506 or e-mail cca@ukzn.ac.za
