Poetry from Snowdonia

The publication of Seren’s poetry pamphlet, Poetry from Snowdonia is an excuse for another of our popular Coffee and Poetry events in the MoMA Cafe, with featured poets: Nicky Arscott, Julia Crompton, Helen Sandler

Nicky, Julia and Helen will read from the pamphlet adding a few of their current poems responding to place and the land, both close-up and from afar.

Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
so you don’t confuse them with mountains
— Shakira
