Our next exciting poetry-filled event happens on Sunday, 18th April, 2pm at The Promised Land (Windsor Place, Cardiff), featuring DAVID WOOLLEY and JACKIE CORNWALL.

DAVID WOOLLEY is the author of Pursued by a Bear (Headland), his fourth collection of poetry, out in May. He is both a Member and Board Member of Academi, and is on the Board of New Welsh Review.

JACKIE CORNWALL is a poet and playwright. With plays produced by the Everyman Theatre, in 1997 she was awarded the Chair for Poetry at the Welsh National Eisteddfod.
