Bart Wolfe, tragically passed away last week. He will be well remembered for his theatrical performances at the Theatre in the Park in Harare and in particular his portrayal of Diary of Madman; and his work as creative director with Michael Hogg Advertising. In the UK he promoted his poetry widely through gatherings in LondonĀ  (including the Exiled poets group )andĀ  more widely across the South of England. He even trekked north to Sheffield to participate in the Singing for Change project a few years go. Many of us enjoyed his extensive output of poetry both through the internet and an extensive publication print portfolio he self generated through the Lulu press.
