A TRIO of literary luminaries will gather to launch a symposium of sublime prose and poetry in Llandudno.

The North Shore is a quarterly evening of poetry and fiction which will open at Providero Coffee, Mostyn Street, in December.

To usher in this marvellous new coastal congress, the inaugural event will feature the established poets Zoe Skoulding, Fiona Cameron and Glyn Edwards.

Skoulding is the former editor of Poetry Wales, and a senior lecturer at Bangor University, who will be reading from her Seren collection, Footnotes to Water.

Fellow Bangor lecturer Cameron also lectures at Bangor University and will read from her terrific 2016 collection, Bendigo, which was published by Knives, Forks and Spoons Press.

Joining the lecturers from closer to home is Llandudno poet Glyn Edwards, who will read from his Lonely Crowd collection, Vertebrae.

It will be his third recent reading at Providero, having launched his collection in the cafe in June, and performed as part of the Llandudno wide LLAWN Arts Weekend in September.

To hear homegrown transcendent poetic works and help foster Llandudno's burgeoning literary scene, head to Providero on Thursday, December 5 at 6pm.

Entry for the event is free, refreshments will be available from 6pm and readings begin at 6:30pm.
