I'm a Belgian poet, free lance journalist and performer. 2012 starts in a wonderful way with the publication of a new book of poetry, a selected collection of old and new poems all dedicated to the strong, wonderful, inspirational women that crossed my path! The title 'Dancing Her Troubles Away!' Published by Pacific Raven Press!


Background Information

Consider myself as a citizen of the world- travelling with an open mind and lots of love and respect - lost my heart and found the balance of my soul in Africa- poetry of mine can be found along the cyber-literary highway- published 7 books of poetry in my mother tongue which is Dutch-and 3 books n English- poetry and social commitment are running through my life as a red thread- so if you want to know who I am- just read my work! My favorite poets Alice Walker-Nikki Giovanni-Sonja Sanchez- Ayin Adams, Langston Hughes - to name a few*

Birth Place
Sint Niklaas,  Belgium
Accomplishments

Every time you write a good poem- it's an achievement!
Every time people come over to tell you how much your work 'touched' them- it's an Award!
At the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Women's March to the Union Building in Pretoria in 1956 to protest the 'pass law' on the 22nd of September 2006, I was honoured by the Embassy of South Africa in Brussels for my contribution in the struggle to the liberation of women and freedom for all! As I was the only poet amongst the women honoured it proved to me the power of 'the word' is indeed a very strong tool in the struggle for justice and equality!

Additional Information

2013 promises to become a good year! My new book of poetry dedicated to all the wonderful strong women that crossed my life path will be out in january by Pacific Raven Press in Maui, titled 'Dancing her Troubles away! In february I will leave for a long stay till the end of april in South Africa to work again in a project with fine art students of the Artist Proof Studio in Johannesburg and workshops with women at the University of Johannesburg and of course working with out 'gang' of kids in the projects in Soweto! New challenges bring new energy so I start the new year saying Ayoba- let's go for it!!!
