“We believe that words are capable of creating something new within us, transforming us to thinking better and knowing better”
Poetry is one of the most powerful forms of expression that evokes feelings, sparks imaginations, addresses issues of significance in the society and a beautiful path filled with rhythm & riddles to a literate nation.
Seeing how poetry is so underrated in South Africa, The Spoken Word open mic Poetry Session initiative aims to provide young talented poets with a platform to express themselves without limits on a massive magnitude and foster development of the poets to one day become writers of great literature books. This initiative was established by a group of poets by the name of Spokenwordpoetry from Sefako Makgatho Health Science University (Medunsa) simply because of their mutual affection for poetry, literature and the diversity within their cultures, they decided to embrace their differences through poetry. Spokenwordpoetry with word they create, transform and ignite the world.
