I write who I am
"I write who I am" is a book of poetry, written by the Upstart Plus Poets, edited by Harry Owen
and initiated and managed by Shireen Badat
is a Newspaper Project in Grahamstown, which is closely related to the Grocott's Mail and a very inspiring and active partner of the VSA
. The Upstart members were taught by Harry Owen, a local poet, how to write poetry.
Harry then compiled the book "I write who I am" and it was releases during the 2011 National Arts Festival in Grahamstown. Here, we proudly present the content of the book online on awareNet.
