On the Border was created to bring contemporary Welsh poets together with their peers from elsewhere. The intention is to present the finest poets in engaging, powerful and stimulating combinations. Performances have included readings by Simon Armitage, Wendy Cope, Rowan Williams, Roger McGough, Benjamin Zephaniah, and NaCOT’s patrons Carol Ann Duffy and Gillian Clarke.
The emphasis is on accessible poetry, inspiring poets and compelling readings – all of which add up to a great night out. If you don’t know the world of contemporary poetry, On the Border promises a rich and entertaining introduction.If poetry is an old love, there could be no better way to get back in touch.
