Mzi Mahola

His work appears in various poetry journals at home and abroad. He has contributed with other writers of the world to 13 anthologies. Some of his work has been translated into Danish, German, Turkish and Malayalam languages. His first personal effort was a poetry volume titled Strange Things, which was selected to represent South Africa in the World Book Fair in Geneva in 1995. The second volume, titled When Rains Come, won the Olive Schreiner literary award for the best English poetry book in South Africa for the period 2000 to 2001. His third volume, Dancing in the Rain and published by KZN University Press, will be released at the Wordfest in July 2006. He has finished writing two novels, which are waiting for the right moment before he submits them to publishers. His first radio script won first place in a scriptwriting competition and was performed at the Barn. He has submitted the second one to the NMM University for evaluation.
       In 2004 Mzi was invited to the University of Glasgow with three other South African writers to commemorate South Africa's 10 years of democracy in a writers’ symposium. His name was nominated and included in the New Brighton Library Wall of Fame for contributing to community development. To date he has facilitated creative writing workshops, inter alia at the Wordfest. He has adjudicated in poetry competitions and served in panel discussions on topical issues about writing. Presently, he runs a creative writing programme for language educators.
