Take a break from the just wrapped up Mwezi Wawala Arts Festival. Before you prepare yourself for the Sunbird Sand Festival or the Blantyre Arts Festival early October, here is another: Land of poets Festival.
The Festival, which is expected to be an annual event, makes its inaugural entry this September on the 21st and 22nd days of the month respectively at the Blantyre Cultural Centre (formerly French Cultural Centre).
Among the poets expected to perform at the festival is the renowned Jack Mapanje currently based in the United Kingdom but not a new name to poetry in Malawi. There also is also a horde of local poets that is expected to perform at the same event.
The Royal Norwegian Embassy has supported the inaugural edition of the festival.
