The Dylan Thomas Festival to experience Doomsday Cults and Boy Soldiers
Doomsday cults and boy soldiers are to feature in the 2012 Dylan Thomas Festival on Saturday 3 November at 3pm.
But anyone who is alarmed by this seemingly unusual change in programming need not be concerned, for these are part of a series of short stories that will feature at an Edge Hill Prize Shortlisted Writers event.
The prize is awarded annually by Edge Hill University for excellence in a published single author short story collection.
Three of the shortlisted writers from this year’s prestigious competition, A.J. Ashworth, Zoe Lambert and Rowena Macdonald will read from their work.
Their collections range from Montreal to Manchester, love to war and grief to brief epiphanies.
A.J. Ashworth said “I'm very excited about coming to Swansea with fellow writers Zoe Lambert and Rowena Macdonald and to read as part of such a wonderful festival.
'I love writers who take a delight in language and Dylan Thomas certainly did that. He remains an inspiration to many generations of writers, me included”.
Tickets are £6, £4.20 concessions and £2.40 PTL. They are available from the Box Office on 01792 463980 or online at http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/
The Dylan Thomas Festival returns from 27 October to 9 November and features Graham Hunter, Paul Durcan, Nigel Jenkins Menna Elfyn, Ros Barber, Kevin Barry and Roshi Fernando.
