South African poet, playwright and producer Siphokazi Jonas will be the featured poet at the 25th Poetry Africa Festival presented by the Centre for Creative Arts at the University of KwaZulu-Natal from October 11 to 16.

Jones, who has appeared at numerous poetry sessions and festivals around the country, describes herself as a storyteller whose work is fuelled by people’s ordinary lives.

Her experience of growing up in Komani in the Eastern Cape during the transition years of South Africa’s democracy, continues to be an influence in her stories.
