Wales Arts Review is delighted to announce that its ten-year anthology, Home to You, edited by Phil Morris, is now available to purchase and is published in partnership with Storyville Books.
Celebrating ten years of Wales Arts Review, the anthology is published in tribute to its editor, Phil Morris, who sadly passed away at the end of last year after working tirelessly to bring this book to fruition. Phil was a co-founder of the Review, and served as its Managing Editor from 2012 to 2016. For the last decade, Wales Arts Review has sought to publish some of the best critical writing from Wales and about Wales, and Home to You is a celebration of exactly that endeavour. As Michael Sheen says of the Review’s first decade: “Wales Arts Review has challenged, provoked, encouraged, enraged and inspired the arts in Wales.”
Home to You comes with a foreword from Editor Gary Raymond – an edited version of which can be found here – and includes exclusive new essays from writers such as Horatio Clare, Charlotte Williams, Kaite O’Reilly, Jonathan Edwards, Elan Grug Muse, David Llewellyn, Gwyneth Lewis, Rhian E Jones and others. Offering an array of thought-provoking non-fiction pieces providing fresh perspectives in the form of essays, memoirs, travelogues, and artist profiles, the anthology includes contributions from writers who originate from both inside and outside Wales, and many who live beyond its borders, but each with a good reason to call the nation their home.
Tracing the intricate and not-always-obvious cultural ties between Wales and the wider world, Home to You is a powerful testament to the eclectic voices responding critically to the Welsh arts at home and around the world; asking what it means to be Welsh in a globalised digital culture and examining how Wales is responding to international crises and controversies.
