Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

Gillian Clarke: Conversations at the Chapel

Tuesday 26 Mar 2019, 19:30 to 21:30

The Art Shop & Chapel
No. 8, Cross Street, Abergavenny


Gillian Clarke, National Poet of Wales 2008-2016, President of Ty Newydd, the Welsh Writers Centre. Awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry 2010, the Wilfred Owen Poetry Award 2012, Hay Festival Poetry Medal 2016. Picador published Selected Poems in 2016. Her latest collection is Zoology published in 2017.

One reviewer of her poems commented that Gillian 'has the metaphoric and metamorphic power to astonish us into viewing life differently... from the most intensely sensuous of writers.'
Another wrote, 'how hard it is to write such poems, how easy to enjoy them.' 

She has a daughter and two sons, and now lives with her architect husband on a smallholding in Ceredigion.

Alastair Laurence, who is curating this series of talks at the Chapel, is a freelance documentary film maker who lives near Abergavenny.

Chapel bookshop and bar will be open all evening.

For more information, please see the chapel website. Tickets are £10, and available to buy here. £1 booking fee.
