Our speaker in November was Miriam Williams, Communications Manager of Literature Wales.
Literature Wales is the Welsh national literature promotion agency its mission being to promote Welsh-language and English-language literature in Wales. It offers bursaries for writing projects, runs literary events and lectures, and provides financial assistance for creative mentoring and other literary-based ventures. The organisation also selects the National Poet for Wales, and manages competitions including Wales Book of the Year, the Cardiff International Poetry Competition, and the Rhys Davies Short Story Competition. Thanks to the support provided by Literature Wales, Swansea and District Writers’ Circle has been able to provide an interesting programme of speakers over the years and Miriam will provide us with details of the organisation’s forthcoming events and initiatives.
