Welcome to Pen'rallt Gallery Bookshop. It's our blend of bookshop and gallery space to inspire you. We host events too, sociable author readings and talks, photographers' gallery talks and exhibition openings. Our regular series of workshops, from life writing and fiction to poetry, will help to uncover the writer in you too.
We're pretty proud of it and our ever growing number of customers appreciate it too. So, why not have a look around our site which we'll be developing further, or call in.
NEWS & EVENTS IN BRIEF and forthcoming
We marked Small Press Day 7 July, 2018 with live art by Nicky Arscott. Nicky launched her crowdfunder. Suzanne Iuppa read some poems and talked about developments at her small press, Gwendraeth Press. Simon Thirsk (Bloodaxe - which was once a small press) joined in the chat. We pinned a few thoughts to the board, sold a few pamphlets and the day looks set to happen again, and bigger, in 2019. Thanks to all who helped to make it happen.
As we enter our eighth year in the bookshop, and ninth in Machynlleth, we think a sense of 'HOME / CYNEFIN' are fitting themes - subtly different in each of the two languages in Wales - to explore through our new exhibitions and our Open Submission Theme. We hope you will be able to join us or to take part by submitting a photograph to our annual open photography show.
And in our new gallery a few doors along the road - our second photography show More from The Valleys - photographer Anthony Stokes at ffotogaleri y gofeb
