Course tutors, Darren Chetty and Iestyn Tyne
We are pleased to announce that the application process for our annual emerging writers course is now open for applications.

(Re)Writing Wales will be tutored by Darren Chetty and Iestyn Tyne, and will take place at Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre from Monday 27 – Friday morning 31 March 2023.

The deadline for Applications has now closed.

The theme this year, inspired by the popular book of essays, Welsh (Plural), centres around exploring the intricacies of Welsh identity. Welsh (Plural) was co-edited by the course tutors, Darren Chetty and Iestyn Tyne, as well as Hanan Issa and Grug Muse.

Every participant on the course will have a different take on Welshness, and different experiences of living in Wales and imagining what Wales might become. We look forward to welcoming writers to share their unique views on the theme, and we will particularly look to welcome writers who are underrepresented within the literature of Wales.

Emerging writers of all ages can apply but must be 18 or over at the point of submitting their application.
