I am one of forty poets to be featured in Wales' first ever national anthology of haiku poetry. Another Country, published by Gomer, will be launched at the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea on Friday 18th March, with free wine and readings from contributors. The event starts at 7pm.
"Join us at the Dylan Thomas Centre for the launch of Another Country, the first ever Welsh national anthology of haiku poetry. Published by Gomer Press and edited by Nigel Jenkins, Ken Jones and Lynne Rees, it features haiku, tanka, haibun and somonka – in both English and Welsh – by forty poets, from Wales' haiku pioneers such as Chris Torrance, Tony Conran, Peter Finch, Caroline Gourlay, Arwyn Evans, Matt Morden and John Rowlands, to an exciting younger generation, among them Sarah Coles, Alan Kellermann, Eloise Williams, Rhys Owain Williams and Stephen White. There will be readings from the book and music, before and after, from the pianist and haiku poet Marion Carlisle."
Entry is free but if you would like to attend then you need to RSVP by Wednesday 16th March at the latest. To book your place email Lowri Walters at Gomer: firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you can't attend the Swansea launch, they will be doing it all again at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Friday 25th March.
