'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.

Booker shortlisted and twice-winner of the BBC National Short Story Award, Sarah Hall was named in 2013 as one of Granta’s Twenty Best Young writers. The author of six novels and four collections of short stories, Sarah’s visceral and muscular prose creates worlds that are often disturbing and yet also deeply, lyrically human. A writer at the peak of her powers, over recent years she has become perhaps the unrivalled master of the short story in this country. Sarah will read from her latest novel Burntcoat and be in conversation with Prof. Owen Sheers. Followed by a
Q & A with the audience.

“finely wrought, intellectually brave and emotionally honest” The Scotsman on Burntcoat
