What We Do

Since 1986, the trust has supported Welsh writers by funding the following:

John Morgan Travel Writing Award – among the notable beneficiaries were Nigel Jenkins for Gwalia in Khasia, Jon Gower (An Island Called Smith) and Patrick Dobbs (Here for a Month – An Ulster Journey).

Robin Reeves Young Writers Award – supporting both Anna Lewis (Other Harbours) and Natalie Ann Holborow (And Suddenly You Find Yourself).

Individual Writing Grants – most notably to Owen Sheers at the outset of his now highly successful career.

The trust was also able to help fund the Harri Webb Poetry Prize as well as a memorial plaque to John Tripp in Whitchurch Library.

Stay tuned for new opportunities to be announced shortly!
