‘Do not go gentle …’

Cwmdonkin Drive signOne of our Stoke Stanza regulars has been going gently down to Swansea and Laugharne recently – this Dylan Thomas centenary year.

Here are some of Chris Phillip’s photos from his visit to Thomas country, from Cwmdonkin Drive to that ‘heron-priested shore.’

The BoathouseIf you’re a Dylan Thomas fan then why not check out John Lindley’s latest collection, Embers and Sparks? It’s inspired by the life and work of Dylan Thomas and you can find full details on John’s website.

Closer to home, we’ve got an embarrassment of riches. There’s a full and exciting programme of poetry and spoken word events at Hanley Library – full details here.

Also, Sir Andrew Motion, the former Poet Laureate is appearing at Goosfest in Goostrey on 7th October – details.

If that wasn’t enough, there’s a packed programme of music and spoken-word at the Nantwich Words and Music Festival … and there’s still time to enter their poetry competition before the deadline closes on 19th September. Details.

Stanza member, Phil Williams will also be organising a music and poetry evening Poppies, Poems and Peace at 7.30pm on Armistice Day, Tuesday 11th November at the Salt Line Studios, Crewe Road, Alsager where there’ll be an evocative exhibition of peace-themed crafts.

What’s more, we’re back at The Leopard pub in Burslem for Stanza Sessions on Tuesdays 23rd September, 14th October and 25th November, all at 7.30pm.

We hope to see you soon. Dylan Thomas plaque
