POLOKWANE – The non-profit organisation (NPO), Angels Motivation and Career Information, hosted a poetry workshop with the assistance of the Polokwane Tourism Association (PTA) last month to encourage local poets to create and showcase they work.

Angels Motivation and Career Information Founder, Besley Boshielo, said he felt there was a need for poetry to be highlighted as it is often a neglected art which is why they decided to host the workshop and subsequent competition.

“Singing and dancing are most often put on the forefront with poetry often left behind when it comes to art. Our intention is to develop poetry, not only in the city, but the province as a whole,” Besley explained.

He said the competition has a strict judging criteria where poets have the opportunity to showcase their talent in three categories – primary school, high school, and adults.

The participants of the semi-finals were selected following the workshop with the competition being held at the Library Gardens Auditorium on 13 March with the finals at Ocean Basket Mall of the North on 27 March.

Attendance for the semi-finals is free and tickets for the final is available at R50 per person. For more information contact Besley Boshielo at 084 509 7872 or 076 518 1528.
