'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 visit Taliesin to discuss their personal experiences of their craft and approaches to their work across poetry, fiction, non-fiction, stage and screen.
A former researcher for Human Rights Watch, Ben Rawlence is the author of three works of non-fiction, Radio Congo: signals of hope from Africa’s deadliest war, City of Thorns: Nine lives in the world’s largest refugee camp, and most recently the shocking, urgent and acutely researched The Treeline: The last forest and the future of life on earth. Grounded in human interactions of great empathy and insight, Ben’s writing takes us into the stories and ideas at the fringes of of our experience, but always at the centre of our times. Ben will read from The Treeline and be in conversation with Prof. Owen Sheers. Followed by a Q&A with the audience.
“The Treeline is wise and considered, offering both klaxon warning about the state of the earth and beautiful hymn to its interdependencies.” Nation.Cymru
