My experiences at the National Arts Festival

I have been out of this space for some time now. Life has been taking me to different places and have not really had the time to sit down and express my thoughts as I would like.

As it is I am at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape (EC). I have been here since the past Saturday and after helping my friend out with her thesis we will head home. I am beyond tired as I have been running around like crazy :). I am well though so I am not complaining.

I am here as a delegate for the WordFest, which sees novice writers, experienced editors and publishers in the same space in an effort to develop, hone and improve the skill where possible as well as to give strength and encourage one another.

The trip has exceed any and all of my expectations in that it exposed me to a varied network of creatives in literature, language specialist and all different types of books. The knowledge gained here I can never be thankful enough for.

I managed to find a store here called ‘Under The Arch’ which  is now selling my jewellery line. It is located at the gate of Rhodes University, EC. So now whenever you are in Grahamstown you can always go there and ask for Miss Understood Jewellery and Nadine will be happy to assist 🙂 .

The WordFest also afforded me the opportunity of showcasing my 12 minute documentary on spoken word (Poetry), Unspoken, much to a delighted audience. This has motivated me to press on as much as I can as an expressive activist and storyteller.

I don’t think I will get less busy, instead where I can I will make time to share my thoughts with you. I really appreciate that you still take the time to visit my space and read my ramblings.

There are new key developments however, more of that when things are concrete.

Remember : Success is a journey, not a destination. Stay free.
