Sexing the word: Jozi House of Poetry investigates

From Keorapetse Kgositsile to Mphutlane wa Bofelo, South African women’s poetry is among the strongest in the world.

Does biology impact on how people think or write? Can one tell, just by reading it, that something is written by a woman? What are the striking aspects of feminine literature?

Unisa Professor Deirde Byrne will be answering these questions, and more at the Jozi House of Poetry: Sexing the Word, featuring Myesha Jenkins and Vangi Gantsho. Bring a packet of sanitary padsand get a R10 discount off your ticket on 2 September at 2pm. Be part of the line-up and read one of your poems in the open mic. Housed at POP Art Performance Centre, Main Street LIfe, Fox Street in the trendy Maboneng Precinct, the venue is surrounded by restaurants and bars, and the legendary market at Arts on Main is only a block away.
