Writers of Wales
This is a new project that aims to highlight many of the great Welsh writers in the country, both past and present. We will be creating A-Z listings of as many Welsh (or Welsh connected) writers that we can find from throughout history and then adding all the new, modern authors out there as well as time goes on. So whether you’re a Brythonic historian, a best-selling TV celebrity, a sports star, a celebrated crime writer, a politician, priest or poet, or one of the new breed of ‘indie’ writers we want to hear from you. All we ask is that you have some connection to Wales.
