Myth-Making: a Poetry Course at Ty Newydd tutors Daljit Nagra and Pascale Petit 27 July – 1st August 2015
guest reader is Liz Berry
http://www.llenyddiaethcymru.org/myth-making-a-poetry-course/  

How do you bring an old myth vibrantly to life? Or, how can you transform your life into a brand new myth? You’ll be encouraged to let your imagination fly, no holds barred on the magical or the raw. The emphasis will be to write as boldly, as colourfully, and as deeply as you dare. Workshops to spark poems, one-to-ones, and precious writing time will all be supplied.
