BayLit came to an end yesterday with a PoetryLive! event aimed at GCSE pupils and featuring a fantastic line-up of poets – Gillian Clarke, Simon Armitage, Carol Ann Duffy, Dannie Abse, Sheenagh Pugh, John Agard and Imtiaz Dhaker (whose poetry, coincidentally, I’m looking at with my Cardiff Uni creative writing students this week).

I didn’t get to as many Baylit events as I would have liked, though I did somehow manage to win tickets for an Aisle 16 Services to Poetry gig on Saturday night in one of those ‘the first six people to respond to this message will receive a free pair of tickets…’ larks!
