Poetry Wales will be holding a special event in September to mark its 50th Birthday. The magazine was founded in 1965 and has been publishing poetry and criticism from Wales and beyond for nearly 50 years. The first issue of the 50th Volume was published this summer and is the first to be edited by Nia Davies. To mark a long history and a new chapter, we will be holding a celebratory event in Cardiff on 25th September.
There will be performances from a variety of poets and you’ll be able to get a glimpse of the magazine’s history. Short readings will come from Rhian Edwards, D E Oprava, Kevin Mills, Damian Walford Davies, Jonathan Edwards, Emily Blewitt, Steven Hitchins, plus others to be confirmed.
All are invited to come and celebrate with us in the gallery upstairs at Jacob’s antiques market on 25th September from 7pm. The event is free to attend but space is limited. Email editor [at] poetrywales [dot] co [dot] uk to avoid disappointment.
