The next Rendezvous of the Live Poets Society (LiPS) will take place on June 1 and offers an evening of superb poetry

Special guest, poet Mphutlane wa Bofelo, will open the evening’s poetry session. This firebrand social and cultural revolutionary is no stranger to the local and national poetry scene. A cultural worker and social activist whose essays, articles and poems have appeared in various print and on-line publications, he has just published The Way of Love - poetry and reflections inspired by Rumi and other Sufi poets.

A writing facilitator at Workers' College in Durban, Mphutlane wa Bofelo is presently working on his debut poetry CD and on Red Ink, a collection of essays on politics and culture. His other books are The Heart's Interpreter, Bluesology and Bofelosophy, Remembrance and Salutations, The Journey Within: Reflections in Ramadaan.

The LiPS Rendezvous takes place on June 1 at 17h30 for 18h00 at the Point Yacht Club, Victoria Embankment, Durban. Admission is free. More information from LiPS convener, Danny Naicker on 083 282 0865 or email:
