Roath, a buzzingly bustling part of Cardiff should be a port of call in your very near future if your interests include seeing and hearing poets and spoken word artists of all kinds recite, rant, rave, rap in your general direction, and even ring the bells of your heart with the songs of their souls.
Christina Thatcher, Dave Daggers, Mab Jones, Johnny Giles, Mark Blayney, Steven Kenward and many more weavers of words and hosts with the mosts will be demonstrating just how versatile an alphabet with a mere 26 letters can be, treated with the appropriate amount of loving caresses. Smiles will happen, hearts will beat at various rates for various reasons, tears may be shed, unexpected ejaculations of chuckling delight are a distinct possibility. The festival offers events (see some below) that fill a whole three days to bursting point with spoken word, written word, workshops and exhibitions, all rounded off with a poetry slam and after party.

Hope you can make it along, and I promise to do my best to amuse you with my small contribution to the festival, at the Slam. See you there. Maybe?
