All is now ready for the 3rd edition of Poetry Jam, an annual poetry gala organised by arts hub Let Words.
The poetry jam set for October 23rd at Robinson House in the capital has been fully subscribed after an overwhelming response from poets around the country.
Organisers’ of the event representative Zyek, real name, Wilson Morutare said everything was now in place for the hosting of the much awaited event.
“There was a registration for the poets wishing to perform, for now the slots for performing poets are full. The registration to perform at the event was free but has since been closed.
“The motivation behind the poetry jam is “art” and the aim is to give unrecognised voices a stand.
“On our second edition we collaborated with a wonderful poetry performing space, Poetic Minds led by a lady called Tomas Terrie,” said Zyek.
Let Words was founded by Zyek together with Treble Clef (real name Tinashe Muwandi) and Talking Fingers, born Llyod Makunda.
The event which is running under the theme “Folktale” will start at 12:30 up to 4pm on Saturday.
Zyek said they are still working on the arrangements to bring the event to a wider audience through virtual broadcasting.
