This year’s Poetry Africa International Poetry Festival, organised by the Centre for Creative Arts (University of KwaZulu-Natal), took place from Monday 14 to Saturday 19 October 2013 at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre with the finale held at The Bat Centre. The festival boasted an impressive line-up of local and international poets.

Khethukuthula Lembethe, from Journalism Iziko at the Durban Institute of Technology, attended a talk by Malika Ndlovu, Kole Oluwatoyin and Kobus Moolman on “Poets in the media”. Lembethe said the discussion “unveiled the relationship between journalism and poetry and stressed the fact that journalists should speak and write truth in the best humanely possible way”.

The 17th International Poetry Africa festival brings together the world’s finest poets and musicians to Durban and the Durban University of Technology’s journalism Program today had the privilege to experience some of the poets and engage in dialogue.

The session was eye-opening and it unveiled the relationship between journalism and poetry and also pressed on the fact that journalists should speak and write truth in the best humanely possible way.

Poetry Africa tweeted from the opening night and shared photos on their Facebook page, which can be seen below:
