Vonani Bila's voice in Bilakhulu! is as buoyant and direct as ever; his emotional range is broad, incorporating humour and lament. These seven narrative poems, ranging from 3 to 35 pages in length, are grounded in the poet’s family and village, at the same time making visible the wider forces that impinge on rural life.
Bila is a driving force in South African poetry – founding editor of Timbila poetry journal, publisher of Timbila Books and founder of Timbila Writers’ Village. He is the author of five books of poems in English and eight story-books for newly literate adult readers in English, Sepedi, and Xitsonga. Vonani Bila teaches in the Department of English Studies at the University of Limpopo, and in the MA in Creative Writing at Rhodes University. He lives with his wife and three children in Shirley Village, Elim, Limpopo.
Bila was also the previous editor of New Coin.
