This month's Clera podcast – on SoundCloud and iTunes – includes an interview with this year's winner of the Chair competition at the National Eisteddfod in Cardiff, Gruffudd Owen – recorded before he took part in Cicio'r Bar, a new poetry event in the Aberystwyth Arts Centre – a talk with Aneirin about strict metre Breton poetry and a brand new poem by the artist and poet, Manon Awst, who took part in this year's Her100Cerdd. The poem is about the Neolithic burial chamber on Anglesey known as Barclodiad y Gawres, and Manon recorded herself reading the poem inside the chamber itself. She also produced a video to accompany the poem, which can be seen above.
The autumn heralded the launch of two new cultural ventures in both Aberystwyth University and Bangor University that reflect the current strength of the Welsh-language poetry scene. Cicio'r Bar, a quarterly poetry event held in Aberystwyth Arts Centre, was launched by Hywel Griffiths and I in November with two special guests, the winner of the Chair competition at the National Eisteddfod, Gruffudd Owen, and the band Blodau Gwylltion, who's lead singer Manon Steffan Ros won the Prose Medal at this year's Eisteddfod. My poem for Gruffudd can be read on this website. In Bangor in Semptember a new cultural society was set up to celebrate literature in all its variety, Cymdeithas John Gwilym Jones. The poem I was commissioned to write for the society is also available on this website.
Cyfres Halibalŵ is a new series of six funny stories for children aged 7 to 11 (Key Stage 2) from CAA. My story – Teulu Tŷ Bach – is brilliantly illustrated by Rhys Aneurin and is about Blodwen, Cleif and Sam the dog, a trio of weird and wonderful characters who live in a very small house nextdoor to a very mischievous cat and her very grumpy owner. Funnily enough, four of the authors – Fflur, Mari, Gwenno and I – are all 2004 graduates from the Department of Welsh and Celtic Studies at Aberystwyth University. Ideas and activities based on the stories are available on the Hwb website, and can be used to boost language and literacy both in school and at home.
