'A Nice Soft Day' in Radnorshire

Christopher Reid, Róisín Tierney and Martina Evans
outside the corporate HQ of Rack Press in Powys
There was a great turnout for the Rack Press reading in the church of St Michael, Discoed, Powys on Saturday 13th April.  The church was full and the poets were on top form: Rosalind Hudis, Angela Topping, Nicholas Murray, Christopher Reid, Róisín Tierney, and Martina Evans all read to a very appreciative audience and there was a party afterwards at The Rack, the Radnorshire cottage which is the home of Rack Press.  Never have so many poets assembled under that roof!

The Irish poets on the bill said that the drizzly but warmer spring day we had would have been called in Ireland: 'a nice soft day'.  And so it was.

The Radnor Readings

The snow has finally gone, the daffodils are struggling into bloom, the tiny lambs are on their feet, and the Rack Poets are in Radnorshire on Saturday afternoon at 3pm [see post below].  It looks like being a very special event and, who knows, the sun may shine.
