2015 becomes another interesting year in my artistic career. Having started my journey in the arts in the 1990s as an actress, then became a playwright when I released my debut play “The Pain” which won the 1998 FNB VITA AWARD as the Most Outstanding Production at the Windybrow Annual Arts Festival. In 2002, my second play “Thespian” was part of the Young Writers Festival at the Market Theatre.
Since then my involvement in the arts has grown tremendously, especially in the literary field. As part of the wRite associates I have been involved in many projects including the South African Literary Awards, Africa Century International African Writers Conference, the Literary Heritage Lecture Series, Literary competitions, Publications and Literary talks.
Under the wRite associates, I also had the honour of founding and heading the Miriam Tlali Reading and Book Club, a legacy programme of the South African Literary Awards and the Tsebe Reading and Book Club and Tsebe Community Library
My poetry appears in the Timbila publications and Artvist magazine, the latter a publication of the national Department of Arts and Culture. My television appearances include Soul City and the Missing Link.
On 30th April 2015, I will be launching my debut album, titled, “Tata” at the State Theatre, Tshwane as part of the International Jazz Day. I give thanks to God and my ancestors for guiding and supporting me in all my endeavours.
