Representing Wales: Launching a series of public online events for writers
Literature Wales is pleased to announce the beginning of a series of public online events, delivered as part of our flagship Representing Wales writer development programme. 

Representing Wales is a 12-month programme which provides professional development opportunities for writers from low-income backgrounds. The programme is funded by The National Lottery through the Arts Council of Wales. This year, a series of selected events will be made open to the public, offering open and accessible opportunities for writers and creatives across Wales to further their understanding of the industry, widen their networks and gain inspiration for their writing. 

Details of the first three events are noted below, and a further three events will be announced during the summer.

All events will be hosted on Zoom and are free to attend.

There will be live captioning and/or BSL for Deaf/hard of hearing participants provided in selected sessions. We will try to meet additional access requirements wherever possible, please get in touch with specific access requirements, concerns, or requests.

Programme Details: 

  • To learn more about the barriers facing writers from low-income and other under-represented backgrounds and how they can be broken, join us for our Panel event with Lisa Blower, Patrick Jones, Emma Smith-Barton and Grace Quantock.  
  • To learn more about the importance of considering personal well-being within your writing practice, join Mari Elen, Caryl Bryn and Dewi Prysor as they share their experiences.
