Tŷ Newydd

Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre


Tŷ Newydd is the National Writing Centre of Wales. Established in 1990, thousands of aspiring and emerging writers have since passed through our iconic teal front door.

We specialise in residential creative writing courses. Every week we welcome a new group of individuals from Wales, the rest of the UK and beyond to our home. They spend time together under the tutelage of professional writers, taking part in workshops and one-to-one tutorials, enjoying readings and basking in the inspirational setting of Tŷ Newydd. Participants also help in the kitchen, where home-made meals are prepared with local ingredients.

Our programme of courses features a mix of residential courses and retreats – both in the English and Welsh language – and cover many genres, forms and styles, including poetry, fiction, non-fiction, scriptwriting, nature writing, illustrating, storytelling, yoga and more. We offer bespoke courses for educational groups, where we work alongside tutors and teachers in order to create a perfect course for their group. It is also possible to hire Tŷ Newydd privately for a corporate course, a holiday or a special occasion.

Tŷ Newydd is run by Literature Wales.
