The author, activist and performance poet Mphutlane Wa Bofelo won the 2003 Slam Poetry Competition and the 2005 SlamJam in Durban. He is also co-founder of the Anti-Racism Education Forum. The Soweto-born novelist, poet and producer Napo Masheane is a member of the Spoken Word collective "Feela Sista!".

She is involved in the "Kalaneng Arts Track", an organization for young actors, and is co-editor of "Colour of the Diaspora." Titles such as "The Fat Black Women Sing" betray the provocative, humorous style of her works.
