Helen Moffett was born in Pretoria in 1961. A poet, editor, feminist activist and academic, her publications include university textbooks, an anthology of landscape writings, a cricket book (with the late Bob Woolmer and Tim Noakes), and the Girl Walks In erotica series (with Sarah Lotz and Paige Nick under the nom de plume Helena S. Paige). Her first poetry collection, Strange Fruit, was published by our friends at Modjaji Books in 2009, and her latest release, Prunings, was published earlier this year by uHlanga. She lives in Noordhoek.
Shirmoney Rhode is a 25-year-old writer and performance poet who grew up on the Cape Flats in Elsies River. She predominantly writes in Kaapse Afrikaans, which is the dialect of Afrikaans spoken in the Western Cape. An alumnus of the University of the Western Cape, she is currently teaching Afrikaans at Claremont High School in Cape Town.
