10 NOVEMBER 2015

The Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation launches its pilot online mentorship scheme, which will run from November 2015 to May 2016. This first of its quest, this program is part of the #Babishaipoetry  annual prize, awarded to the shortlisted poets, who are some of the most highly imaginative, exceptionally talented and unswerving poets. This mentorship scheme in a sense, will enable them to foster a professional writing relationship with dedicated mentors to African poetry, nurturing their craft and building their confidence as performers. Some poets on the program are also winners from previous years. Amongst our mentors, whom we are most privileged to have are:-

 Stephen Derwent Partington.
Poetry is his primary hobby and passion. He began to write poetry at school. He describes his poetry as accessible. His early writing was full of Modernist allusions and foreign languages, but as he accessed more contemporary poetry this disappeared.
He’d probably also describe it as hybrid in the sense that while he has sought to fit into the Kenyan (and wider African) traditions of broadly Anglophone verse, lots of influences from his pre-Kenya days remain. He has been published widely in various anthologies and also,
published in; . Two collections, one in Kenya (SMS and Face to Face) and one from the UK (How to Euthanise a Cactus).

Harriet Anena is a Ugandan author, poet, and journalist. She is the author of a collection of poems, "A Nation In Labour" and currently works at African Centre for Media Excellence. Anena worked with the Daily Monitor newspaper as a reporter, sub-editor and deputy chief sub-editor from 2009 to September 2014. Her journalistic articles have been published in the Daily Monitor, New Vision and The Observer (Uganda). She has previously taught Specialized Writing at Islamic University In Uganda.

Sopelekae Maithufi (courtesy photo)
 Associate Professor in the Department  of English Studies, University of South Africa. He generally researches how people in liminal positions discursively perform context-specific identities. This is an interest that he pursued with considerable earnestness subsequent to his MA degree candidacy in Postcolonial Literary Studies in English at the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg. His PhD (Wits, 2009) explored the suitability of Njabulo Ndebele's cultural studies model, the ‘ordinary’, to the representations of textures of everyday life in several South African short story writers. It reveals Maithufi's continued keenness in the novel ways in which subjects appropriate positions of authority beyond antinomian lines. As somebody who teaches mostly African literatures, literary and cultural studies theories from across the world, Maithufi attempts to highlight dynamic interplays between primary texts and theoretical frameworks.

“I started reading books at the age of two, when did you start reading?” That is what Asiimwe, Rachel and other children of Epitome Kindergarten in Muyenga will say. When people see their ability to articulate in exceptional ways, their highly imaginative ability, they will say that it's because they started reading from the age of two.

Thanks to their head-teacher, Joyce, who organized a book week from 2nd to 6th November. The shelves were filled with animations, folk-tales, fairy-tales, animal stories, fantasy books and jolly phonics, all with the aim of changing a generation. We were privileged as Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation, to donate books to the children. Chijioke Amu-Nnadi, a critically acclaimed poet from Nigeria, winner of the 2014 Glenna Luschei Prize with three globally sought after poetry collections to his name, donated a large amount of books to the Babishai Children’s Book Drive. Grassroots Uganda, run by Lee Anyadwe, generously donated children’s material to the drive as well and for that we are eternally grateful. These donations came during the Babishai Poetry Festival in August 2015. It was the first ever poetry festival in Uganda and came with close to 250 guests from 11 different countries. Our next festival will be held from 24 to 26 August 2016 under the theme of Abundance: Poetry From Contemporary Africa. Amongst the confirmed guests are Kenyan actor and playwright, John Sibi Okumu, The Head of Literature at Makerere University, Dr. Susan Kiguli, Botswana’s highly acclaimed poet, TJ Dema, amongst others.

 #Babishai2015, 1ST POETRY FESTIVAL in Uganda, organized by the Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation

The #Babishai2015 poetry festival, the first poetry festival in Uganda, took place from 26 to 28 August 2015 at The Uganda Museum in Kampala. The open-themed festival, organized by the Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation, was a celebration of the #Babishai2015 shortlisted poets, awarding the winners, sharing poetry through master-classes, performing before younger and older audiences and launching the BN Poetry Foundation’s second anthology, Boda Boda Anthem and Other Poems: A Kampala Poetry Anthology. The estimated number of participants in total was 250 and the total number of countries represented was 11. There was also a welcome to the festival discussion of the #Babishai2015 shortlisted poems led by Harriet Anena, held at Femrite on 24th August.

Members at the discussion

Being the first poetry festival brought exciting and well-thought out sessions. On the first day, the festival began with a dance breakfast with celebrated dance group, Batalo East. Abdul, the dance director, opened up with a physical awakening of our bodies and minds and artists and consumers of art. While dancing with the festival participants, Abdul engaged in conversation about the poetry of dance and how our bodies communicate more than we can ever think.

  Later on was a master-class by Dr. Charles Mulekwa, entitled, From the page to the stage. During this session, Charles highlighted how stage performances cannot or should not exist without the process of the page, meaning writing, re-drafting and editing. Two of his students performed various poems, practically giving new meanings to words on a page.

During poetry-in-session that evening, a monthly session hosted by Roshan Karmali, the true meaning of liberty through art was felt. With performances from Checkmate Mido, Fatuma’s Voice, Professor Remi Raji, Chijioke Amu-Nnadi, Khamara Ashnan, Jason Ntaro, Fortune Unlimited, Gordon Musinguzi, Roshan herself and other celebrated poets, each piece a personal ritual and conviction of words, rose into a unique and most memorable night.

On the 27 August, second day of the festival, we held two master-classes. The first was by Professor Remi Raji, who is a board member of the Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation and current President of Association of Nigerian Authors.  His class was a discussion of poetry, its craft, importance of respecting the craft and appreciating poets that have inspired great works of a generation. He then demonstrated the importance of pruning writing, of thinking creatively in order to write creatively and ended with a challenge of writing a spontaneous chain poem. The results were incredible.  

Another unforgettable session was led by Ife Piankhi and Checkmate Mido, ‘From the page to the stage.’They engaged us in role play, picking character traits and demonstrating them without speaking. It was quite hilarious, challenging and worthwhile. Theirs dealt with body language and the power of silence,  as we understood better ourselves, our voices and our innermost convictions as we react emotionally. All this played into how and why we write and perform poetry. It was spontaneous and tricky at the same time. Kagayi Peter, one of Uganda's celebrated spoken word poets, led us through important discussions on poetry and the spoken word, challenging us into deeper understanding.

Chijioke Amu-Nnadi, who also led a master class, used a more spiritual and soul-searching approach. He acknowledged that poets are spiritual beings and that their poetry should manifest from that deep spiritual connection. Kagayi Peter, a well celebrated poet from Uganda, spoke candidly about poetry, the learning process, the spoken craft, identifying with subject matter and production.

None of us knew that blogging poetry could be so much fun and Magunga Williams, one of Kenya’s most celebrated bloggers and Eric Otieno from Fatuma’s Voice. Blogging is one of the most essential forms of communicating in our times. It’s creative, has a wide reach and potentially positive influence. Blogging, in order to be taken seriously, requires utmost care and consistence in order to gain credibility. #hopeyougotthat .Femrite, Black Poet and Checkmate Mido met students, children and a few older poets, sharing challenges and joys of writing but mostly encouraging younger writers to not give up, to read and practice as much as they could and read widely.

In the evening, we launched Boda Boda Anthem and Other Poems: A Kampala Poetry Anthology, at the Goethe Institut. Close to 100 guests were in attendance. The anthology, edited by Ugandan writer, Mildred Barya, a doctoral fellow at The University of Denver, is a selection of voices across the world, on me the theme of Kampala City. The verses, well selected and edited, magnify Kampala’s weaknesses, strengths and aspirations, through their imaginative images and strong diction. Guest appearances from Daniel Omara, one of Africa’s greatest stand up comedians, were a major highlight. Chijioke Amu-Nnadi launched the anthology and Professor Remi Raji made an order of 30 copies for each of the states of Nigeria represented under the Association of Nigerian Authors. Jalada Africa, who sent reviews to several journals in East Africa, also led discussions on the anthology and asked participants about their own imaginative depiction of Kampala in 50 years time.

On Friday the 28th, the day began with a session entitled, “When the earth weeps, art also weeps.” Led by Sara Kaweesa, a board member of the Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation and director and founder of Arocha Uganda, she emphasized how crucial it is for us to be stewards of thee earth and use creative messaging to share that to the rest of the world. As artists, our responsibility is to raise as much awareness of the dangers of global warming, littering and un-care of the environment. Next that day was Poetry On the Mountain. In partnership with Uganda Travel Bureau, The Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation will take poets and thrill seekers for an excursion to The Mountains of The Moon in Kasese-Uganda. Deo Lubega, Patron of the Mountain Club of Uganda, took us through the process of both physical and mental preparation for the task ahead. Interested participants registered and from June 10 to 13 in 2016, about 50 enthusiasts will climb Mountains of the Moon and recite poetry, at an individual fee of 355 USD. For more details, visit the website or email bnpoetryaward@bnpoetryaward.co.ug.

Every lunch time of the festival was filled with performances from various artists including children. In order to fill the demand for performance space, this was necessary. We then held a session led by Cross Cultural Foundation of Uganda, who talked about historical buildings in the city and how important the documentation of history is, to the preservation of culture. Later, we were hosted by Martha Byoga aka Maritza, host on Urban T.V, who interviewed past winners and shortlisted poets of the Babishai Niwe Poetry prize, alongside the #Babishai2015 shortlisted poets. It was here that Rashida Namulondo, Kelly Taremwa, Flavia Kabuye, Sophie Alal, Sheila Okongo Nyanduaki, Regina Asinde, Adeeko Ibukun and Nakisanze Segawa, who were present. Interestingly, while a few poets wrote their poems on the spur, all of them had to go through the rigor of re-writing, editing and self-doubt, which still re-emphasizes the importance for all poets, that nurturing is always key.

In the evening, was the grand finale award ceremony. Guests filled the main hall of the Uganda Museum. Various poets filled the stage and a documentary highlighting the Babishai Niwe Poetry journey was played, before Professor Remi Raji, board member of Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation and President of Association of Nigerian Authors, announced the top five winners.

      #Babishai2015 winning poem

           A ROOM WITH A DROWNING BOOK  by Adeeko Ibukun (Nigeria)

            Somewhere in the room a book is drowning, the floor
            is shivering with pages. You said the spine is the balance

 to our two winged hearts. Sometimes it’s the light knitting
            its letters to our hearts. I see how things hold us in their lights

so we aren’t here or there like you’re here and somewhere
a lover holds you in her heart, light in water teaching these lessons.

Sometimes something holds clearly what we couldn’t say in words.
We face it to learn our silence and that again becomes part of

our languages. Places own us like this, light bounces off them,
turning their spears at me. Our hearts beat now and vision takes

its shapes—the stream of consciousness, nuances as water turn,
streamlet as novella lost in our undercurrent.  I’m lost in a story now

or a story’s lost in me. Perhaps we should hang on words so that
we do not drown. Remembering makes living its anchor. So I asked

if it’s us you wanted to save insisting everything  is placed this way
and that way of our anniversaries, each moment  achieved  as light

buried in water—so it’s here or there, past or present, our chairs and tables,
dresser and records becoming the dykes. The mirror’s at an angle

to the world so it does not yield all its light at once. Everything’s our
subject before we become their subject, relying on memories to endure.
