Happy International Short Story Day!

Happy International Short Story Day! I shall be celebrating by reading short stories this morning and working on a new short story this afternoon... I hope you have a day of enjoying short stories and their writers, also. Gifts/drinks most welcome. Next week I am off to see Patti Smith play, frolick about in Laugharne for my birthday, and then hop over to Dinefwr festival to perform a few poems:



Saturday, 1.00pm
Jam Bones is the brain child of Mab Jones, and is a spoken word enterprise based in Cardiff. It has organised over 50 events, including: monthly Manic Monday poetry happenings in the capital city; the popular PechaKucha Night of mini-presentations at Chapter Arts Centre; various slams, including the Welsh heat of this year’s National Team Poetry Slam; the Floralia Festival, a showcase of female creative and performance talent; the Welsh leg of Attila the Stockbroker’s 30th anniversary UK tour; and many, many more!
 The poets at Dinefwr include:  ‘notable bohemian’ Susie Wild; multiple-slam winner  and ‘rock ‘n’ roll poet’ Jack Pascoe; erudite poet and former crime journalist Nicholas Whitehead; lit-hop sensation Liam Johnson; John Hegley slam winner Sue Hamblen; and MC, the “hilarious” (Western Mail) Mab Jones.
 A diverse mix of poetic styles with one thing in common – the ability to entertain, engage, expound emotions, expand minds. Expect comedy, tragedy, satire, and substance, mixed with scintillating style!
