Literature Wales: Our Mission

Literature belongs to everybody and can be found everywhere. Through words we discover new worlds. By working with others in a wide range of communities, Literature Wales can make literature a voice for all.

Literature Wales is the national company for the development of literature in Wales. Our many projects and activities include: Wales Book of the Year, the National Poet of Wales, Bardd Plant Cymru and Young People’s Laureate Wales, creative writing courses at Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre, Roald Dahl 100 Wales, Services for Writers (including Bursaries and Mentoring) and Literary Tourism initiatives.
