Join us for an evening with Len Pennie discussing her new highly anticipated poetry collection, Poyums!

The event will take place in the Melville Theatre, Abergavenny on February 29th at 7:30pm.


And I have done more than just simply get by

So much more than escape or survive

Through the galvanisation of love, time and patience

I’ll take hold of my story and thrive.

After life that was seldom what life ought to be

Through laughter and love I’ll be whole

This story is mine from the cover to spine

And the narrative I will control

Whether she’s writing letters to her younger self, advocating for women’s rights or adapting fairy tales to process an abusive relationship, Len’s voice is bold, unashamedly frank and unmistakably hers. The poems in this collection, both funny and fiercely feminist, announce a formidable new talent.

Moving deftly between English and Scots, poyums is as approachable as it is affecting.
