Next meeting to take place on November 4 at the Point Yacht Club.

The next meeting of The Live Poets Society will take place on November 4. The publicity material reads: “You don’t have to be a musician or singer, to love and be passionate about music. You don’t have to be a writer to enjoy good literature and adore books. You don’t have to be an Olympian athlete to sit back, relax and enjoy a good game of sports. You don’t need to be a Poet to fall in love with Poetry and appreciate the written word.” All poets and lovers of poetry are welcome to the meetings of this pro-active society.

The Guest Poet will be Renee Burton who has published an anthology of poetry titled For everyman …by some woman. “As South Africans we have our own stories to tell, our own wounds to heal and our nation to build,” says Renee Burton. “We don’t need to borrow ideologies from other worlds”.

There will be an Open Session where those present can offer their own poetry contributions. As this will be the last meeting of the year, those attending are requested to take along some snacks to share.

The meeting will be held at 17h30 for 18h00 on November 4 at the Point Yacht Club, Victoria Embankment. More information from Danny Naicker on 083 282 0865 or email:
