Words in my Mouth is a poetry platform in Mbombela with the aim to promote arts in general the city, as well as giving up and coming artists the opportunity to hone their skills. It serves as an incubator for up and coming writers, musicians and artists. Since its inception in 2016 this platform has seen several well-established South African poets perform in Mbombela as part of so-called poetry slams where poets battle it out to see who is king / queen of the rhyme.
Included in the programme are panel discussions as well as question & answer sessions. The slam-winner will be announces on Saturday.
Date and time: Thu 27 Jun and Fri 28 Jun 14:00-16:30, Sat 29 Jun 13:00-17:00
Venue: Blue Gate Tea Garden, 46 Ehmke Street
