Rhys Davies Short Story Conference
This September will see the first Rhys Davies Short Story Conference take place at Swansea University. From the history of the short story form in Wales and its context in the wider international literary scene to the marketability of short story anthologies, this dedicated conference will appeal to readers, writers and academics alike. Taking the reputation of one of Wales' most renowned short story writers as a starting point, it provides an opportunity to enjoy the craft of the short story at its best and presents a wide-ranging, high-profile programme of talks, panel sessions, master classes and performances all centred on the short story form, both modern and traditional.
The impressive line-up includes Edna O’Brien, Will Self, Tessa Hadley, Meic Stephens, Dai Smith, Claire Keegan, Cynan Jones, Rachel Trezise, Shena Mackay, Jon Gower and more.
This new flagship conference is organised by The Rhys Davies Trust in partnership with Literature Wales, CREW (the Centre for Research into the English Literature and Language of Wales) and Swansea University.
