The December 2016 issue, compiled by outgoing editor Gary Cummiskey, contains 112 pages of contemporary poetry, as well as reviews of new South African poetry collections.

Several contributors to the December issue will be reading at the launch, including Myesha Jenkins, Arja Salafranca, Gérard Rudolf, Lionel Murcott, Linda Ndlovu, Saaleha Idrees Bamjee and Raphael d’Abdon.
