A new platform title: Poetry Mondays, has been launched in Harare to promote poetry in the country.

Budding poets and other established artists are set to benefit from the Poetry Mondays, an initiative meant to give poets a platform to express themselves.

Poets from around the country will have a chance to present poems and express their poetical prowess as they interact with local industry players.

The Director of Poetry Mondays, Fred Nyakudanga said the programme will encourage and promote local poets to grow.

Poetry Mondays kicked off this Monday at the Red Cafe in Harare with a number of poets participating including Evolve Poetry and Lisa the Poet, among others.
