Please note: The content you’ll see on the Writers of Wales Database is user generated. Literature Wales is not responsible for the content and its correctness, and though we are working hard to ensure that the writers featured reflect the literary landscape of Wales, it is possible that this database will not be truly representative due to the nature of its self-generation. This is a beta version which we are trialling, and we welcome any feedback. If you’d like to report on your user experience, please contact us.
