Beaven Tapureta (1975) was born in 1975 in Chitungwiza. He holds a diploma in Communication and Journalism from the Christian College of Southern Africa. He is the programme officer at the Budding Writers Association and has published articles on poetry in local newspapers. He says, “My appetite for writing began when I was at secondary school in Epworth, inspired by the poor and the fast life we led despite inadequate resources.”
