Mission Statement

Literature belongs to everybody and can be found everywhere. Through words we discover new worlds. By working with others in a wide range of communities, Literature Wales can make literature a voice for all.

Literature Wales is the national company for the development of literature in Wales. Our many projects and activities include: Wales Book of the Year, the National Poet of Wales, Bardd Plant Cymru and Young People’s Laureate Wales, creative writing courses at Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre, Roald Dahl 100 Wales, Services for Writers (including Bursaries and Mentoring) and Literary Tourism initiatives.

We achieve this by:

Providing children and young people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds with more chances to create and enjoy the literary world around them

  • Bardd Plant Cymru and Young People’s Laureate Wales – ambassadors for all children and young people in Wales
  • Slam Cymru – a platform for young people to express themselves through the spoken word
  • Young People’s Writing Squads 
  • Tŷ Newydd Schools Courses

Using digital creativity to promote literature and encourage more people to engage with it


  • Unique digital content sharing the excitement of live events and devising new digital literature projects
