Upcoming events

First Thursday

I’ll be at Seren’s First Thursday event in Chapter Arts Centre at the beginning of December. It’s been ages since I’ve been Cardiff-way, and this is my last reading of the year, so I’m really looking forward to catching up with some familiar faces, signing some books, and reading alongside Christopher Meredith! If you can’t make it in person, the event will be streamed live, so you can join us in the comfort of your own slippers!

“The class has given me the confidence to start writing and the confidence to carry on writing.”

— Rhiannon Morgan, workshop attendee

“I am particularly struck by the musicality of Salacia, where the poems chime and echo with the enchantment of spells.”

— Zoë Brigley
