‘In my craft or sullen art,

Exercised in the still night

When only the moon rages’ - Dylan Thomas

Welcome to In My Craft, Taliesin’s new autumn series of events on the craft of writing organised in collaboration with the University’s School of Culture and Communication. Curated by Professor in Creativity Owen Sheers, leading writers from across the UK will discuss their personal experiences of their craft and their approaches to their work across poetry, fiction, non-fiction, stage and screen.

Raymond Antrobus MBE FRSL, is a multi-award winning poet, educator and spoken word artist, including, the Ted Hughes Award, the Sunday Times Young Writers Award and the Rathbones Folio prize. His arresting, challenging and generous poems move through continents and history to create stunning collections of verve, empathy and linguistic inventiveness that encompass issues of the d/Deaf experience, masculinity, dementia, race and heritage. Raymond will read from his second collection All The Names Given and be in conversation with Prof. Owen Sheers. Followed by a Q & A with the audience.
