Badilisha Poetry

Badilisha Poetry

You got scribbles hidden away in a book, on a page...maybe waiting for some kind of stage? Looking for a platform to showcase your work???
Well..Badilisha Badilisha Poetry X-Change plays out its vision through Badilisha Radio. The project has been created to encourage and present:

Platforms for the exposure and growth of unheard voices;

Opportunities for established and aspirant poets to engage with each other and their work for mutual benefit through networking and skills transfer;

Diverse genres of poetic expression including performance and multi-media;

Access to wider market places utilising these media; and

Spaces for discussion and debate, as a means to explore and mature the poetic form as a tool for social activism.

What are you reading?

I’ve recently read the book The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. The book is written with such sensitivity and an understanding of our spiritual journeys. I carry this book in my bag!
“Then the gates of his heart were flung open, and his joy flew far over the sea.”
What are YOU reading? Do you have a book you would like to recommend? Share!
