|Connor Allen is the Children’s Laureate Wales for 2021-2023
Over the next two years, poetry and performance will set the imaginations of children alight as the poet and multidisciplinary artist from Newport, Connor Allen, takes on the role of Children’s Laureate Wales for 2021-2023.
Connor Allen was appointed as Children’s Laureate Wales following a successful call-out in May 2021, and Literature Wales is thrilled to welcome such a talented, dynamic, and visionary artist to this ambassadorial post.
Connor’s appointment was announced on National Poetry Day 2021, an annual UK-wide celebration that encourages all to enjoy, discover and share poetry. The celebration’s goals happily reflect Connor’s vision for the next two years, as he works towards making poetry accessible, fun, and relevant to children and young people across Wales.
