The Jacana Literary Foundation is pleased to announce the shortlist and finalists for the Sol Plaatje European Union Poetry Award 2014.
The jury, comprising distinguished South African poets Johann de Lange, Goodenough Mashego, and Ingrid de Kok, selected 82 poems out of the 303 entries received to be published in this year’s anthology.
The Sol Plaatje European Union Poetry Award is supported by the European Union. The annual Award, named after Solomon Tshekisho Plaatje (1876–1932) and now in its fourth year, recognises the life and vision of this highly respected political and social activist. As Plaatje’s works did in his time, these poems reveal the political and social attitudes of our time.
