Update: Please visit our Poetry on Tap photoset for photos, read our recap as well as Susan Richardson’s thoughts and Susie Wild’s musings [scroll down] on the warm, welcoming and poet-tastic afternoon! See you at the next one! (That’s Sunday, 14 Feb, 2pm at the Promised Land.)

This poetry-filled event took place at 2pm on Sunday, 17th January and featured poets SUSAN RICHARDSON and SUSIE WILD.

SUSAN RICHARDSON’s first collection of poetry, Creatures of the Intertidal Zone (Cinnamon Press) was inspired by her journey through Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland in the footsteps of an intrepid eleventh century female Viking.

SUSIE WILD is the author of The Art of Contraception (Parthian), a collection of short stories loosely connected by the theme of contraception. She performs her poetry and fiction regularly in Wales.

Poetry on Tap takes place on a laid-back Sunday afternoon right in the middle of Cardiff, upstairs at The Promised Land on Windsor Place, just off Queen Street.

There will also be an open mic section for both established and aspiring poets [limited number of slots, so be quick!]. Come and read in our lovely, loft-like venue, or simply relax with a beer and hear the words flow!

Bring your friends and come join us for another fun Sunday!

£4 entry or £2 for open mic readers

Supported by Academi

January’s open mic prizes generously donated by Cinnamon Press

and New Welsh Review
