Taru discovered his love for poetry in college and has been writing since. He is a author of the collection Die or Live Trying, a compilation exploring education, race, religion, love and more.

Sabukie Osabutey is a Ghanaian writer and performance poet whose love for performance poetry has earned her literary recognition in Ghana and beyond.
