3 to 5pm Poetry in the Afternoon – David Calcutt, Keith Chandler & Gregory Leadbetter.    BUY NOW

Three of my favourite poets will read from their recent works. If you don’t know their poetry yet – I hope that you too will be as taken by it as I am. Three very different poetic approaches and voices – but each in keeping with ‘Ceriog’s desire for “simplicity of diction and emotional sincerity”

Keith Chandler and The Goldsmith’s Apprentice
“A wonderful and generous book. The poems welcome you in and hold your attention with their deftness, attentiveness and joy-in-making.” – David Morley
Gregory Leadbetter and The Fetch 
“A collection full of quiet intent, testifying to “the overwhelming importance of love.”’ – Jo Bell
