Innovative Poetry and Spoken Word
The Aberystwyth English and Creative Writing Department MA programme presents sneak preview of this year’s MA Anthology, showcasing Aberystwyth’s best short fiction, prose and artwork on the theme of ‘Journeys’. The Anthology will be released in May 2018, with all profits going to Mind Aberystwyth.
New Welsh Review will be showing two videos produced by Aberystwyth University students and recent graduates on either the GO Wales or the Aber Forward schemes. One is an animation of a comic story, ‘The Pavement Poet’, set in Cardiff and written by Joao Morais. The other is an illustrated audio story by Mihangel Morgan, ‘Hen Bethau Anghofiedig’ (Old Forgotten Things), in Welsh with English subtitles by Gwen Davies.
Words& innovative poetry and spoken word evening. Organised by Mary Jacob in association with the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Words& features invited guest poets in conjunction with literary journals such as Poetry Wales, New Welsh Review, Planet: the Welsh Internationalist, and more. To perform at the open mic, please sign up at the Performance Studio at 6:30. All types of poetry are welcome, including Welsh, English and other languages.
