Patricia Schonstein Poetry in McGregor Award
Poetry in McGregor is an annual festival anchored at Temenos 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 is the vision of Billy Kennedy, the Gardener in the Garden of the Beloved at Temenos.
Each of the festivals is celebrated by a dedicated anthology. It is with pleasure that I give my name to the Award and Acclaim associated with the festival’s annual anthology. The Award is granted for an outstanding poem published in each festival’s dedicated Anthology. The Acclaim is granted to a poet for lifetime achievement or for their service in enhancing this important genre.
