Each month on the Libraries Wales website, they focus on an inspiring author based in or writing about Wales. You’ll have an introduction to their latest book, a short biography of the author, what inspires them to write, and any advice they have for young writers, all available in exclusive interviews.
Since introducing this feature, some of their focused authors to date have been Max Boyce, Stevie Davies, Rob Gittins, Eloise Williams, Nicola Davies & Rachel Tresize.
In May 2023 we see Pontypridd writer, Dave Lewis featured. He is a #1 Amazon Best Seller and award-winning writer, poet and photographer and always lived in Wales except for a short spell in Kenya in 1993-94. He has worked for BBC Wales, written local newspaper columns and been published in a number of literary magazines and also websites all over the world.
As well as having published over 20+ books he also runs the international Welsh Poetry Competition, the Writers of Wales A to Z database, self-publishing company Publish & Print, and the Poetry Book Awards.
