John Eppel's Jasmine a Guardian Poem of the Week

John Eppel was featured in the UK's Guardian on 12 July, with his poem Jasmine chosen as their 'Poem of the Week'.

The poem first appeared in his 1995 collection Sonata for Matabeleland and was subsequently published in our collection Selected Poems: 1965-1995. Selected Poems was our first publication, all proceeds from which went towards the charity Childline Zimbabwe.

The newspaper article also discusses John's work and his collaboration with Julius Chingono, which is to result in the publication later this year by 'amaBooks of Together, a collection of short stories and poems by the two writers.
