In May/June 2014, a two-week residential summer school for international students is being organised by Dr Menna Elfyn.
With two weeks of lectures, events and excursions dedicated to his life & work, patrons can celebrate the centenary of Dylan Thomas’ birth and experience the splendour of West Wales, fully absorbing Dylan’s world.
As well as Director of Creative Writing at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s (UWTSD) Lampeter and Carmarthen campuses, Menna is an award-winning poet and playwright who is the author of over twenty books and whose work has been translated into twenty languages.
Focusing exclusively on the legacy of Dylan Thomas as a catalyst for creative writing, a number of internationally renowned writers will be giving lectures, workshops and master classes in Lampeter and Swansea, with visits being arranged to all of the significant locations associated with Dylan.
With two different accommodation packages, Patrons will be based at the University’s Lampeter Campus. Set at the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains in the county of Ceredigion, Lampeter is a lively, historic market town and the Campus itself is situated on one of the town’s main thoroughfares.
The Summer school runs from Sunday the 25th May to Saturday the 7th June 2014.
