Due to a family illness AMAZING ADJECTIVES and DINGLEDUM DRAGON have been cancelled. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Friday night programme addition:
The Ferryside Lapwings are a small collective of village wordsmiths, poets and singer/songwriters. It was formed during a collaborative performance by the original Ferryside Trio, Glyn Jones, Dominic Williams and Alexis Jones in September 2017 at the Llanelli’s Spoken Word Saturday organised by Eleanor Shaw.
Dominic Williams is a poet and Alexis performs what she claims to spoken word accompanied by a few strummed chords. Alexis writes and sings in both English and Welsh.
We’re delighted to welcome Dominic back to our festival. Dominic was one of the founders of the inaugural Dinefwr LitFest with Llenyddiaeth Cymru / Literature Wales in Llandeilo. It’s wonderful to have him here again continuing to contribute, at Llandeilo Lit Fest.
Catrin Beard will chair Jon Gower’s session on John Selway
Gary Raymond’s session “The Golden Orphans” had to be cancelled.

Last night Gaynor and I received an award for our Literature Festival. It’s amazing to think we had an idea two years ago and people everywhere have said yes, and helped and supported us, from artists to volunteers, councils, business owners and residents.
And despite set backs and all kinds of teething problems, support has not wavered and now we got a sssscestificate!
DIOLCH YN FAWR – MANY THANKS

Island Life, Word Birds & Process
In a couple of months I’m giving a short talk at the Llandeilo Literary Festival. It’s lovely to be invited & I’m looking forward to it. Although I still experience a frisson of nerves when called upon to face an audience, these days I do so with more confidence. In particular, I like engaging with people; with readers who have questions. These are my stories & I know them – there’s very little to be nervous about frankly. My previous experience of audience participation has been 99% good. (Asking about the 1% will get you nowhere! There’s always one?)
When Christoph – our hardworking leader – asked me for some advance info for publicity (not least the title of my talk), I had to think on my feet. The festival doesn’t happen until April but needs must & I like an organised chap.
