SAPS: EC Book Fest, Eastern Cape.

As the EC Book Fest we usually have our Cream of Literature Poetry Sessions in Motherwell, Coselelani High School here in Port Elizabeth. We usually have them during the last Saturday of the month.

We usually reserve an hour for open mic poetry performances followed by an hour dedicated to our headliner.

The headliner is sometimes a poet, storyteller or author because the aim of our sessions was to afford students and the interested community members a chance to experience creative writing first hand particularly poetry.

 

We have workshops that are educating on various creative writing elements but poetry is our priority. We started in February 2016 and so far we have had great attendance and interests coming from township creatives.

Our aim is to feature into building the poetry industry in our country and internationally.
We  are working very close with well seasoned national and international poets so as to increase our level of understanding  and the growth of poetry in our daily life.

We aim to represent in the following literary festivals EC Book Fest, Puku Story Festival, Word Fest in Grahamstown, Spoken Word Art Festival and the Naked Word Fest in Cape Town.
