Julie Pritchard poetry with friends at The Fireside Coffee Lounge, Bargoed. Friday14th November

Fab evening at The Fireside Lounge promoting my work along with other fellow poets promoting their work too. We had a lovely meal first then we opened the mic. Myself first, Alan Roderick from Newport, host of the open mic The Old Murengher. Followed by lovely Amanda Birch and Mam Aida Birch, the women behind Poems and Pints at the little Cambrian Inn, Neath and who drove from Neath via Gelligear Common had a special encounter with some cows. Mike Jenkins man behind The Red Poets and MC for Red Poets Imp Merthyr. Ian Cross with his lovely partner Elyri. Bridget Leggy Tanner read her own work so well, Sheila Hart, wooed us all, they travelled from Cardiff. My dear friend Tim Richards shocked us but made us laugh out loud. Fran Smith read her lovely words Pauline William artist drew for us they came from Penarth. Lovely Jo Ager who has been away for so long came and shared her very funny observant words on to our ears, came from Beddau. Debbie Price( baa baa sheep) my dear friend who helped me to publish “Butterfly Kisses and a Bee Sting Mind”. To Keith, RT, Dan, and others who came to listen. The venue was great the room looked sexy to me, the acoustics were very good no need for a mic. Food was excellent the staff were wonderful. It was the people who came that made the evening so great. Will be having another evening of poetry from the Fireside Friday 12th December in the down stairs lounge with a roaring fire

Poetry should be like my left hand, fingers stretched reaching out to the whole of South East West Wales letting the valleys in.
