Literature Wales is the national organisation responsible for developing and promoting literature. It is made up of Yr Academi Gymreig / The Welsh Academy, which is the Society for Writers of Wales, and Tŷ Newydd Writers’ Centre.

literature_wales_logo_400px_wLiterature Wales represents the interests of Welsh writers in all genres and languages, both inside Wales and internationally. It offers advice, support, bursaries, mentoring and opportunities to meet other writers. Read more about Literature Wales and The Welsh Academy here.


I’ve been an associate member of Literature Wales (Llenyddiaeth Cymru) for several years, but I’m now proud to announce that I’ve been added to The Writers of Wales Database.

Johanna Nield
is the pen-name of Gail Metcalfe (nee Nield-Siddall). She was born in St Asaph and still lives in her childhood home of Rhyl on the North Wales coast. Creative writing became a passion in primary school, where she won two national writing competitions; English teachers in high school further encouraged her love of words, language, reading and writing, and that passion has never waned.
