Preseli Poetry Slam – Last Chance to Join in the Slam

 

 

 

Span Arts and PLANED 3rdJuly 2019

This summer Span Arts and PLANEDhave been hosting a unique bilingual writing project.   The Preseli Poetry Slam Project is now in the closing phase and they would like to invite you to take part.

Welsh poet Karen Owenhas been commissioned as Preseli Poet in Residence, spending time in the county over May, June and finally in July. During this time she has been inspiring the people of Pembrokeshire to pick up their pens to write about life in the region.  She has worked in schools, pubs, village halls and even in people’s homes. A huge number of poems have been written, some serious poems, funny poems, poems about village life aswell as many words about the striking landscape.  Poems have been created through the medium of Welsh, English and bilingually by fluent speakers, learners and absolute novices.

There’s still a couple of chances to get involved!

The Project is holding a final public workshop in Brynberian Vestry from 1-3pm on Tuesday 16thJuly, come along and have a chat to Karen, get warmed up and let the words flow.

 

On 19thJuly the project culminates in The Preseli Poetry Slam, a celebration which will be held at Newport Memorial Hall from 7-9pm.  This will be a FREEinteractive and informal event with food, drinks and poetry.

 

Span Arts invite you to read poems composed during the project or rustle something up in the next week or so.  The only rule is that it should be themed around experiences of life in the Preseli Region and the invitation is open to everyone.
