Friends! We are elated to reveal the stunning cover art for our new print edition, courtesy of Tsakane Maubane. Titled ‘Ma Skhosana’, this striking painting of the painter’s mother salutes her in a way only artists can; gloriously sublime.
Inspired by the collection ‘This way I salute you‘ by Professor Keorapetse Kgositsile, the theme of our new print edition, Poetry Potion 14- This way we salute you, pays homage to our late Poet Laureate and the many people that build and hold us. We salute Myesha Jenkins and remember Australian poet Candy Royalle. Vus’umuzi Phakathi speaks to our editor Quaz about the work Current State of Poetry(CSP) is engaged in. This edition also features two book reviews; GAU-trained by Flow Wellington and feeling & ugly by Dr Danai Mupotsa.
Poetry Potion 14: This Way We Salute You can be ordered from Black Letter Media
