The Patricia Schonstein Poetry in McGregor Award

Poetry in McGregor is an annual festival held in the village of McGregor. This is nestled between the Riviersonderend and Langeberg mountains of the Western Cape.

It is the only festival in South Africa devoted solely to poetry and each one is celebrated by a dedicated anthology.

It is with pleasure that I give my name to the Festival's annual poetry award.
