Donker Jonker

Donker Jonker is the poet persona of a writer whose published works (which include six books, 300+ columns and about 150 magazine articles) range from dusty country humour to consistently carrying a torch for this earth.

As a poet, he flirts with a variety of muses, but often chooses to explore the hidden corners of the human mind.

Donker Jonker

He is also an accomplished live performer of his work, and has played the Royal Arts Town Amphitheatre and Breytenbach theatre (among others) with one-man shows directed by multi-award-winning director Mark Graham Wilson.

When not juggling words, Donker Jonker likes to paint and sculpt, stroll or play the harmonica to the weavers by the dam.
