Made in Roath – The Book

Our Latest publication is the result of a collaboration between ourselves and 40 contributors involved with Cardiff’s Made in Roath Festival.

The festival is held in various guises throughout the year. This year the main event happens next week – links below.

Made-in-Roath-Volume-one-cover-frontMade in Roath, The Book, contains a mixture of poetry, prose, observations and photographs and provides the opportunity to take a peek into the minds, individual and collective, of the uniquely creative inhabitants of the multi-layered area of Cardiff known as Roath.

The book was conceived during a chat with the festival’s Poetry and Literature Coordinator – Christina Thatcher not long after last year’s events; and, eventually, due to Christina’s gentle persistence and hard work in collecting the contributions and editing them, the resulting book has finally manifested itself and is available worldwide – and in particular in Roath.

There’s going to be a mini-soft-launch for the book sometime at the end of next week, on Sunday 18th, the last day of this year’s festival I think. More details will be available from:
