Literary Death Match | Cardiff Arts Institute | 10 May | The Write Up

'After a boozy intermission, Round 2 featured author/journalist/editor Susie Wild (author of The Art of Contraception, winner of the Fiction Book of the Year in the Welsh Icons Awards) going up against Cardiff-born, John Tripp Spoken Poetry Audience Prize champ Mab Jones (who represented Wales at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, DC). Wild fired first with a Japan-infused fiction offering, followed by Jones who reeled off three performance poems that had the crowd in throes.' 
'Again the judges were turned to, with Whitehead claiming Wild's skewed version of Japan was exactly as he remembered it, Glenn loved Wild's "metronome knees" and mention of ginger nose hair.'
