Gathering, to read and discuss South African poetry written in the 90s and 00s.

The 90s and 00s were a creatively fertile time for South African poetry. Daring young poets were writing in daring new forms, trying to articulate the hopes, doubts and confusions brought about by the new democracy. Berold, editor of New Coin in the 90s and later the editor of Deep South books will lead a reading and discussion on some of the amazing poems of these years. The reading will be followed by an open workshop at 14:00, same day. The Poetry for Pleasure meetings are a collaboration between the Wits Writing Centre and the Creative Writing Department.
