Willowfontein Dancing Pencils Writing Club Launches Second Anthology


Thamie Mkhize, Mentor of the Willowfontein Dancing Pencils Writing Club, spoke to the audience at the launch of the club’s second anthology on Sunday 4th August.

He explained that a group of 18 young men meet each week to motivate and support each other, by writing or playing chess, or advising on various life issues. The club  have a third anthology that is ready for publication so they have been working hard. Next the individual members will work at each writing a stand alone book or novel.

The atmosphere at the launch was warm and happy as the Blue Moon Dancing Pencils Writing Club were also present as was a third invited writing club. The programme included two Indian dances and several items put on by the Willowfontein members themselves. Xolani Sithole, publicist for umSinsi Press and Dancing Pencils, did a performance poem.

And the breyani at the end of the function was really delicious! Thank you to all who helped make this a special evening.
