Leading Poetic Voices set to raise the bar at the Lagos Poetrython.

Lagos Poetrython and arts cafe is a gathering of wordsmiths and lyricists and a platform for the exhibition of the finest on the Lagos and International Poetry Scene. The event encompasses poetry slam, book reading, panel sessions, Poetrython and masterclasses.

It will be an assembly of seasoned poets with a battalion of art and literary enthusiasts – to observe, stimulate, savour, dramatize and paint the history, now and future of our socio-political cum cultural and economic proclivities on the tensile canvass of reality – with the aesthetic brush of pounding thoughts and heart -felt colour of words.

There will be interactions, mental quiz, soul searches, intermittent heaves of nostalgia, networking, brainstorming sessions, relaxation and solicitation for us all to be mindful of not crushing the tender flowers of humanity; to keep hope alive and to lend a voice to the plight and yearning of the leaders of tomorrow.

The masterclasses would be curated by Tolu’ A. Akinyemi (Newcastle, UK), Saint Rhymes (Nigeria), Torpedo Mascaw (Nigeria), Toyin Seth Ogungbemi (Nigeria), Dami Ajayi (Nigeria), Rezthapoet (Nigeria), Olulu King (Nigeria), Sage Hasson (Nigeria), Adeoye Abodunrin (Life intuitive coach) and Timi Dakolo (Songwriter).
