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

New Publications 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 They have a plan to publish twelve unpublished poets over the next two years.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 recently published one Wiltshire and two Devon Poets; Estelle Phillips from Salisbury, Tia Meraki from North Devon and Kate Gold from Dartmoor. Both Devon poets have been headline performers at Taking The Mic at The Exeter Phoenix. Estelle Phillips has been featured on BBC Sounds and BBC Radio a number of times since publication in September. She has also been confirmed as second place winner in The Yeovil Literary Prize for her Novel..
Wessex Media have just finished working on a collection of Short Fiction and Poetry from the Bridport writers group Storytraders. To be
released in November 2022, 'A Jurassic Omnibus' offers a literary journey through some of the beautiful locations in West Dorset.
Two other authors are currently in discussions with the founding editor of Jawbone 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.
