Llên mewn Lle | Lit in Place

Llên mewn Lle | Lit in Place is Literature Wales’ flagship project that explores the climate and nature emergency through literature, run in partnership with WWF Cymru.

The project offers funding to writers to devise, set up and deliver activities within their local community. In 2022-2023, three projects have been supported: Gwledda, run by Iola Ynyr in RhosgadfanThe Fruits of our Fire run by Siôn Tomos Owen in Treherbert; and The LUMIN Syllabus, a partnership between Sadia Pineda Hameed and Beau W Beakhouse in Swansea.

In April 2024, two further communities in Wales will be supported to explore and understand their local eco-systems. The project aims to contribute to wider discussions on finding practical solutions to the adverse effects of the climate and nature emergency.

Rhian Brewster, Head of Communications, WWF Cymru said:

“Nobody knows the local landscapes better than those who live and work in those communities. People, nature and climate are interlinked, they depend on each other to survive. We are excited to work with Literature Wales on this project which has unlocked a passionate and creative response to the climate and nature crisis, from communities across Wales.”
