CARDIFF, WALES -- Poets SUSAN RICHARDSON and SUSIE WILD read their latest work at the new Poetry on Tap reading series on Sunday, 17 January, upstairs at the Promised Land, Windsor Place (off Queen St), from 2pm.
SUSAN RICHARDSON is resident poet on Saturday Live at BBC Radio 4 and author of Creatures of the Intertidal Zone (Cinnamon Press), 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.
The event also includes an open mic section, with prizes donated by Cinnamon Press and New Welsh Review. Entry £4 or £2 for open mic readers.
Poetry on Tap is Cardiff’s newest monthly poetry and spoken word series co-curated by Ivy Alvarez and Mab Jones, providing a showcase for electric experimentation and lively risk-taking through poetry, with exciting and uncommon pairings between poets and spoken word artists. Supported by Academi.
