First Thursday with Claire Williamson, Samantha Wynne Rhydderch & Will Johnson
Join us for May’s First Thursday of the Month event at Chapter, Cardiff, where we celebrate new poetry and fiction.
For May we have three wonderful guest readers. Claire Williamson will read from her hot-off-the-press new poetry collection, Visiting the Minotaur, in which the poet must enter a labyrinth of her own complicated family history, a history beset with secrets and lies, in order to come to terms with her own identity. Samantha Wynne Rhydderch presents her new Rack Press pamphlet, Ling Di Long (a Welsh phrase for ‘walking’), and Will Johnson will read poems from his Eyewear pamphlet, My Speaking Tongue.
After the guest readers we will have our famous Open Mic, and all are invited to read one poem (one A4 page max) or one page of prose.
Entry: £3 on the door (redeemable against purchase of a book)
