Mbali Vilakazi - Poetry is the Process

(Mbali Vilakazi: Poet, performer, creative facilitator)

Idea worth spreading: The process of creating poetry has certain principles that can be adapted into systems of living. Through the act of re-creating how we use language, we are able to re-create our very lives -- we are able to reframe our experience of it. It offers us the opportunity to process and navigate the world differently.
