Welsh Literature Course with Bethan Gwanas
June 17 - June 21£495
Following the success of this course in 2017 and 2018, Bethan will be back to lead a course on some of Wales’ best contemporary writers; this time, authors such as Daniel Davies, Sian Northey and Llwyd Owen. There will be an opportunity to meet some of the authors, including the winner of the 2018 Eisteddfod Medal, Manon Steffan Ros. That novel, Llyfr Glas Nebo, will be the topic of a chatting session with local readers on Wednesday. Under the guidance of an author who is also an experienced Welsh tutor, it will certainly be an entertaining and fun course!
