Slam Dunk

Went to a Jam Bones slam poetry event last night in the Cardiff Arts Institute. It was run by the brilliant Mab Jones. The professional poets, Anthony Fairweather and Byron Vincent were absolutely wicked! Funny, engaging and we understood their poems! Rhyming poetry isn’t dead! We didn’t perform, as it was our first slam but there is another performance poetry event in the Promise Land in Cardiff on Monday which we’re going to. We might perform, we haven’t decided yet. We thoroughly enjoyed the slam and will definitely go to the next one in October. Our style of poetry fits in much better with performance/spoken poetry than traditional poems being read out by traditional poets. Maybe we’ve finally found our niche.

This morning we’ve sent off two pieces of work – an adult fairy story featuring the characters from our Daughters of Annwn novel and Missed Call, the 7000 word version. Talons crossed.
