A New Face in the Editorial Department

20 Sep 2010

Anwen Pierce, a former member of staff at the National Library of Wales, has recently joined the Welsh Books Council’s Editorial Department, while Karina Wyn Dafis is on maternity leave.

A New Face in the Editorial Department
The next few months are a particularly busy time for the Department as it prepares for the Christmas period. Anwen, who lives in Bow Street, will be working on a variety of titles, including novels, autobiographies, and children’s books. She will be working closely with the Department’s Senior Officer, Marian Beech Hughes.

Anwen may be a familiar face to local eisteddfod supporters, as she has won numerous bardic chairs, the most recent one being Tregaron.  She is also a member of the Tal-y-bont Talwrn team.

Following her appointment, Anwen said, ‘I’m looking forward to the work and to have new challenges. I’m sure I’ll be very happy in the Books Council, working closely with Welsh publishers.’
