Sol Plaatje EU Poetry Award longlist announced 

The Jacana Literary Foundation is pleased to announce the longlist for the Sol Plaatje European Union Poetry Award 2015.

The longlist was compiled by a jury of three distinguished South African poets: Johann de Lange, Goodenough Mashego and Joan Metelerkamp. All judging was done anonymously. The hard work undertaken by this jury behind the scenes to select 63 poems out of the 472 entries received was imperative to the creation of a well-curated anthology.
