Haven’t posted here for a while. Latest activity is organising the Words&Words&Words poetry evenings at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre. We have a very dynamic line up for 27th January. There are also open mic opportunities.

I’m really loving Uut Poetry! There has been a lot of action on their site recently, some great pieces.
I was inspired to write something to one of their prompts, which was accepted at http://uutpoetry.tumblr.com/post/120107275060/raymond-carver-asked-hiromi-kawakami-what-is-wrong. I didn’t do the illustration, not sure where it came from, but it is nice.
Doing some fun collaborations with the Facebook group, Bureau of Surrealist Enchantments.
I’m always inspired by the sparks that fly across the gap, collaborative and otherwise.
One more news bit…if you fancy a Surrealist game, the last one of the series in the Gas Gallery is Friday 19th June, doors open at 7:30, activity starts at 8pm.
Come with us exploring Aberystwyth in search of the marvellous! Let’s see what we can see. If the weather is nice, we will venture out for part of the time and find the answers to our surrealist questions in the town of Aber, then reconvene at the gallery to share the results of our interrogations and play more games. Please be at the Gas Gallery no later than 8:00pm if you would like to join this journey.
You are invited to an evening of participatory entertainment. Come join Surrealist practitioner and poet, Mary Jacob (Rrose Sélavy) to play Surrealist parlour games in the beautiful and unique environment of the Gas Gallery. No experience required, just a sense of play. 15th May and 19th June, from 7:30-10:00pm at the Gas Gallery, Park Avenue, Aberystwyth. Suggested donation: £3 Find us on Facebook
Uut Poetry is conducting a Year of Surrealist Games, many of which are based on classic games and those compiled by Kenneth Cox of the Leeds Surrealist Group for the book Ce Qui Sera, which you can purchase at LuLu.
We will be doing some of these in our Surrealist Games evenings at the Gas Gallery, next one is 17th April. Do come along.
Spring into spring and refresh your eyes! Come with us on a Surrealist search for the marvelous in the spirit of collaborative play. Expect classics such as Exquisite Corpse and automatic writing/drawing, as well as new games such as word pop and folded poetry.
No experience required, just a sense of play.
Upcoming dates are: 17th April, 15th May and 19th June, all from 7:30-10:00pm at the Gas Gallery, Park Avenue, Aberystwyth.
