WINZ Newsletter, Issue No 8

It's almost a week to go before writers and poets level the literary vibes at the popular Book Café in Harare. The ‘End of Year Writers Get Together’ roars into life on December 11 2010 at the said venue from 10 am to 1 pm, with some of Zimbabwe’s talented writers and poets set to render ‘thirst-quenching’ speeches, readings, and performances. The event is running under the theme “Building a Future through Writing”. Renowned dub poet and musician Albert Nyathi will speak about the origins of spoken word/praise poetry in Ndebele culture, and of course he will give you a taste of “My Daughter” and other poems of his. New generation writer Tinashe 'Mutumwapavi' Muchuri will explore "the paucity of training workshop facilities for aspiring poets"; distinguished poet Julius Chingono will read from his exciting yet gripping poems. There will be a lot more performances by younger, gifted poets.
