An Evening of Lyrical poetry and Prose

With
Poets
Paul Steffan Jones,
 Mike Sharpe,

Lei Foster
and
Writers
 
Alex Barr, Diana Powell


Fishguard Arts Society has always put emphasis on poetry as an important part of the Arts in Pembrokeshire and we continue to support putting on poetry events. Many of our artists do write poetry or prose alongside their other other art work.

 In this event we have poets with different styles from beat to lyrical and two short story writers.
The poets are Mike Sharpe, Paul Steffan Jones and Lei Foster and they wll be reading and discussing their poems.
The two short story writers are Diana Powell, who was a runner-up in the 2016 Cinnamon Press competition, her story features in their latest anthology, ‘Ruins' and Alex Barr who has recently published a collection of short stories  'My Life with Eva'   Prose does not often get a reading so we are looking forward to it.

A Summer Evening in the beautiful Tregwynt Mansion is glorious.  If the evening is balmy, a glass of white wine, beautiful trees and a view of the sea we may go into the grounds  but either outside or in the ballroom, it will be a magical evening and the words will sing.

Below are a few links to works by our poets and writers. These do not cover the breadth and complexity of their works but give a brief flavour.
