On Monday Night I attended an Open Mic Night at Aberystwyth Arts Centre which happens once a month and I'm glad I did for two reasons.. Firstly I was welcomed warmly and allowed to read 6 of my poems. This was only the second time that I had read my poetry publicly and the setting within the Performance Studio was superb. Thank you to the MC for the evening Mike Smith for his encouragement. Secondly, it was an great to hear the poetry of Damian Gormon originally from Northern Ireland but now residing in Ceredigion. His stories about conflict and about love and about the Troubles of his home joined the poems up seamlessly. Damian returns to the Art Centre at the end of February. I hope to catch him there again.
