It is sad that a number of venues have closed due to lack of footfall. Bridport's Apothecary amongst them.

10th May 2022 - New Publications coming from Wessex Media
Wessex Media are pleased to be the publishing agent for The Jawbone Collective. They have a plan to publish twelve unpublished poets over the next two years. They have recently agreed to publish two Devon Poets; Tia Meraki from North Devon and Kate Gold from Dartmoor. Both poets have been headline performers at Taking The Mic at The Exeter Phoenix. Two other poets from Hampshire and Dorset are currently in discussion with the editors.
Wessex Media are also currently working on a collection of Short Fiction and Poetry from the Bridport writers group Storytraders. Set for release in July 2022, The
Jurassic Omnibus offers a literary journey through some of the beautiful locations in West Dorset.
Three other authors are currently in discussion with our founding editor and we hope to release additional news when schedules are confirmed.
It is with much sadness that we confirm the last physical performance of Bridport's long standing spoken word event took place at the beginning of April. Founded more than six years ago it was a much loved event on our spoken word calendar. Founded by Ged Duncan, Rob Casey and Tom Rogers, Apothecary has been a great platform for many writers and performers from West Dorset and beyond. The Jawbone Collective will continue to run Zoom Apothecary as Jawbone Online and will also launch a new event called Jawbone in Lyme Regis at The Galley Cafe, date TBC.
