Poetic People (13): Chris Kinsey at the Dylan Thomas Centre

We had a terrific evening at the Dylan Thomas Centre last week, when BBC Wildlife Poet of the Year and 'Greyhound Laureate', Chris Kinsey, read from her sparkling collection, Kung Fu Lullabies, published by Ragged Raven Press and praised by UA Fanthorpe. You can read a review on the NHI site. All proceeds from the evening were sent to Greyhound Rescue Wales and the Gower Bird Hospital.

Chris also read from an anthology published by Pont called Poems of Love and Longing. I bought a copy of the book, and was delighted to find that it also contained a sequence of poems (about the north) by fellow poet and blogger, Susan Richardson. Other contributors include Gillian Clarke, Owen Sheers and Christine Evans. I am looking forward to a good read!
