OCTANARY MKHIZE FOR VOICE OUT (article first published : 2006-08-6)

The Dawn “Voice Out” Competition has shone the spotlight on six women in South Africa and - through their participation in the competition – turned them into role models in their communities.

The competition has been running since April and aims at identifying a new voice in female poetry across South Africa. Six regional finalists came together for the semi-finals at the end of July after which three finalists will be selected to compete in the finals of the competition.

Among this year’s finalists is Durban’s Octanary Mkhize (18), the youngest of the regional finalists. “I believe that there are endless opportunities that have been made available to me since entering the Dawn “Voice Out” Competition,” she says, “and I would like to introduce a new style in reciting poetry. I have learnt more effective ways of communicating my feelings to any audience from Lebo Mashile.”

Judges Gcina Mhlophe, Brenda Sisane and Raks Seakhoa will choose one overall winner who will have her work published and also win a brand new Opel Tigra.
