Representing Wales 2024-2025

For its fourth round, our professional development programme for under-represented writers will have a particular focus on developing new works for an adult audience.

The programme will run from 1 April 2024- 31 March 2025. During the year the writers will receive a financial award of up to of £3,300, one-to-one mentoring sessions with an established author of their choice, online workshops on the writing profession and publishing industry, and bespoke creative writing masterclasses, two of which will take place at Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre. Further opportunities will also be offered through networking and access to various literature festivals and events.

The 14 writers were selected by an independent assessment Panel, following an open call-out during the autumn of 2023. The programme has been designed in consultation with communities and writers from Literature Wales’ extensive networks and builds on the successes and learning points of the previous three rounds.
