uHlanga is proud to announce our next release: Questions for the Sea by Stephen Symons.

Lyrical and lachrymose, Stephen Symon's debut collection voyages into the unknowable depths of ocean and adulthood. In gorgeous, flowing verse, Symons gives in to the currents of love, war, parenthood and childhood; and, above all, a collection infused with an all-encompassing awe for the power and mystery of the natural world.

Stephen Symons was born in Cape Town in 1966. An avid surfer, his writing has been published in journals, magazines and various anthologies throughout South Africa. He holds a masters in Creative Writing from the University of Cape Town and is currently working on a PhD in African Studies that focuses of the experiences of ex-SADF conscripts. Currently, Stephen lives in Cape Town, where he works as a lecturer and graphic designer.

Questions for the Sea is set to be released in June 2016.
