Wales Arts Review Podcast Episode Three

Welcome to Episode Three of the new Wales Arts Review Podcast, where we discuss the latest pressing issues coming out of the arts in Wales. This episode sees Gary Raymond talk at length with poet and essayist Zoë Brigley, assistant professor in English at Ohio State University, who hails from the south Wales valleys. Brigley has two books out at the moment, her third collection of poetry, Hand & Skull with Bloodaxe, and a first collection of essays, Notes from a Swing State with Parthian Books. The new work marks Brigley as a major voice in Welsh literature, and here she discusses the thematic preoccupations that forged the new work, most pointedly, violence perpetrated against women.

As well as that, we have all the news and events from the last four weeks of Welsh arts and culture.
