Master's graduate Sithembele Xhegwana released his first collection of poems in the book, Scatter the Shrilling Bones. Xhegwana qualified with a Master of Arts degree in creative writing in 2002. A large portion of the poetry was submitted as part of his thesis. He is preparing to do his doctorate in creative writing at the University of Fort Hare. Professor Lawrence Wright from the Institute for the Study of English in Africa describes Xhegwana's poetry as "redolent with what might be called flinching honesty". Here is one of the poems from his collection.
