Will Ford

and

Bridget Leggy Tanner

 

 

Bridget Leggy Tanner and Will Ford will both offer you some words of their own, as well as welcoming and introducing readers to the unique laidbackness of RARA (shut up spell checker, laidbackness is a word, ok?).

Whether you wish to spit fire at an unjust world, warm the heart and ears of the listener, express unique and quirky insight, at RARA you have five minutes to use in whatever sweet, silly, serious or bonkers way you see fit. Free your words, show us the world through your eyes, paint pictures purely with alphabetical components

RARA is brought to you each month in association with Dave Daggers, Will Ford and the very kind people at the Mackintosh Sports and Social Club, Keppoch Street, Roath, Cardiff.

But without the lovely, inventive, enthusiastic and incredibly beautiful people who come along to share their letter based creations there could be no RARA, so thank you if you have ever come along before, and future thanks are waiting for those yet to enter the friendly, welcoming atmos of a RARA night, where variety is guaranteed, laughs can be anticipated and provocation of thought and sometimes a touch of bemused mystification are part of the mix of material you will encounter
