Following the release of Cardiff 75, a collection of writings from across our beautiful city, come join us at Cardiff Central Library for a conversation between members of writing groups in Cardiff who have contributed to the book, with readings followed by a Q&A session. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event.

Cardiff Writers’ Circle was formed in 1947 and is joined here by other local writing groups, all lending their imaginations to a wide variety of styles, genres, and formats. A fun fact about the title: ‘Cardiff 75’ is a celebration of 75 years of creative writing in Cardiff, and there are 75 pieces in the collection! It has been described as “a big box of marvels, abuzz with distinctive voices and vivid tales” and “a testament to the ability of creative writing groups to energise and inspire” – so come along, hear from the authors, and pick up your own copy of ‘Cardiff 75’, a snapshot of the fantastic talent that exists today in Cardiff, city of the dragon.

Numbers are limited, so please book tickets to avoid disappointment – free tickets can be booked on Eventbrite:

This event is in partnership with Cardiff Hubs & Libraries. ‘Cardiff 75’ was made possible with the help of our funders and supporters Parthian Books and the Viridor and Prosiect Gwyrdd Community Fund.

Please be aware that the event may be photographed and/or recorded.
