National Poet of Wales Gillian Clarke continues her tour of the country next week, heading west with events at Carmarthen and Aberystwyth before wrapping up the tour in Swansea in December.

Two sell-out events in Abergavenny and Skenfrith opened the tour of Wales in September, and since then Clarke has called at Betws-y-Coed and Builth Wells. The poet is writing a tour diary for the BBC Wales Arts website - read her entries to date.

On Thursday 25 November, Clarke will be joined by Menna Elfyn in a bilingual event at the Halliwell Centre at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Carmarthen.

From there she goes to Aberystwyth on Saturday 27 November. Y Drwm at the National Library will provide the stage for two national poets, as Carol Ann Duffy is to read alongside Clarke.

The tour will then conclude at the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea on Friday 10 December, with the Poet Laureate once again joining Clarke for this final event.
