Poetry in Ghana has come a long way. With the Ghana Poetry Festival in its fifth year, ‘we have come far, but we still have far to go’.
A lot of people have contributed to the state of Poetry in Ghana now and a lot more are ready to help get it to the top. But if the same bottlenecks that hindered creatives in the past are not checked, the new generation can only do little.
The works of creatives are for the people. Which means it is very necessary for creatives to have multi platforms and avenues to get their works out to the masses. Publishing and promoting of creative works should not be a hustle after all the creator has gone through to get the work done.
