The Word Distillery Poets

  • Penrallt Gallery Bookshop Heol Pen'Rallt Machynlleth, SY20 8AJ United Kingdom

The Word Distillery Poets perform regularly in Aberystwyth, across the UK and as individuals or in pairs, most recently in London – at the Poetry Place, Covent Garden, The London Welsh Centre and, this month, in Liverpool.  Founded as Poetryworks in 2005 by Stuart Jones to encourage local poets to workshop their poems in preparation for publication, their 10th anniversary anthology 'Distillations' was published in 2015 and will be available at the event.

Now in their eleventh year, they are an inspirational model for how poets might meet, work, perform and publish together.

FREE - Reading here at the bookshop, with tea and cake from 6pm, for a 6.30 start.

Please be sure to book in advance. Email penralltbooks@gmail.com or phone 01654 700559
