Edited by Mandi Vundla and Allan Kolski Horwitz, Home is where the mic is offers a broad selection of some of South Africa's most prominent young performance poets and spoken word artists, and includes several spoken word performers from other countries as well. It follows in the footsteps of many previous Botsotso publications, which have sought to bridge a divide between many dichotomies and terms that permeate many critical interpretations. Terms that loosely fill the poetic/ South African landscape with clichés - popular/populist art, form versus content, relevance, protest poetry, poetry free of pressure to be political, and so on.
