Lit Soc: Ness Owen

Friday 23 February 1:00 pm
Spring is season of renewal, growth and hope so how can we apply the same process to our writing?
 In this workshop we will read and discuss a variety of poems from across the world and experiment with a series of writing exercises designed to shake up our writing processes.
 Participants are welcome to respond to the exercises in English or Welsh.
Ness Owen’s poems have been widely published in journals and anthologies including in Planet: The Welsh Internationalist, Mslexia, Red Poets and Poetry Wales..
Her first collection Mamiaith (Mother Tongue) was published by Arachne Press in 2019 and her second collection Moon Jellyfish Can Barely swim was published by Parthian in 2023.
Her poem ‘And then the geese turned up’ was the winner of Greenpeace’s Poem for the Planet 2022. Her poems have been translated into German, Dutch, Vietnamese and Romanian. She also co-edited the bilingual anthology A470 – Cerddi’r Ffordd/Poems for the Road.
