Poet KOBUS MOOLMAN is off-the-wall on Thursday 8th MARCH at A TOUCH OF MADNESS at 7.30pm (19h30)
Kobus Moolman was born in Pietermaritzburg. He is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of the Western Cape, and lives with his wife in the Riebeek Valley.
He has published seven collections of poetry, two collections of plays, and edited a collection of poetry, prose and art by South African writers living with disabilities. He has won numerous local and international awards for his work, including most recently the 2015 Glenna Luschei Award for African Poetry for his collection A Book of Rooms. He was also guest editor of the first special issue of a South African journal dedicated entirely to the teaching of creating writing, Current Writing. His first collection of short fiction, The Swimming Lesson and other stories, was published earlier this year. He has also recently edited a special issue on contemporary South African poetry for the American journal, Illuminations. His poems and stories reveal his growing focus on the body and on issues of disability.
Kobus will be reading from his award-winning collection, A Book of Rooms (deep south, 2015). Copies of some of his books will be on sale.
