Inyathi, Hudson View, Poetry of South Africa in Dubai and New Delhi

The Inyathi, a journal on arts found its way to the homes and hearts of artists and art lovers. A thousand copies, reprinted a number of times established its motto of focussing on Southern African Arts and its dedication to the South African Art World. The journal was not only loved by South African Artists, Art Faculties in South African Universities but also found subscriptions in the United States, India and Pakistan. The credit for its success goes to the contributors who are, Mathemba Nocoyini, John Steele, Cornelius Thomas, Leon du Preez, Volkmar Dobat, Judy Fish, Terry Flynn, Barry Gibbs, Pumlani Mbanya, Mumtaz Kader and Rentia. It is my greatest pleasure as its editor to announce the publishing of the next issue and call for papers and research oriented articles on art. I would also love to establish an editorial committee which would take-up in improving the journal by providing advice on production and content of the journal. The Poets Printery, South Africa which publishes this journal would be delighted to give distribution rights to artists, art lovers and book shop owners in various cities in South Africa and abroad.

Premier Nosimo Balindlela‘A Hudson View’, an international print poetry journal published by Victoria Valentine of Skyline Publishing, New York and edited by me, created great interest within South African Poetry environs. The journal has poetry from the United States, United Kingdom and Eastern Europe which are selected by Victoria who is herself a well known poet in New York. I choose the poetry from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. I am proud to present well known representative voices of contemporary South African Poetry as Brett Beiles, Kobus Moolman, Shabbir Banoobhai, Professor Peter Horn and Phillippa Yaa de Villiers. The journal has subscriptions to American Universities and Libraries; it is promoted as a book of the month by Glorioustimes, a Yahoo Poetry Group from India and is archived by the Museum of English Literature at Grahamstown, South Africa. The journal had published renowned poets like Sahar Rizvi from Pakistan, Mahfuz Mir from Bangladesh, Mukul Dahal from Nepal, Brian Mendonca, Shreekumar Varma, Glory Sasikala Franklin, Rumjhum Biswas, Prasenjit Maiti, Ramendra Kumar and Rajender Krishan from India.
