Since August 2007, Literature Wales flagship outreach project – the South Wales Literature Development Initiative has offered creative activities to groups and individuals who may not have had the opportunity to participate with mainstream arts and culture. The aim of the project is to engage with people by bringing activities to their doorstep and tailoring content according to their need. The project currently operates in Caerphilly, Neath Port Talbot, Newport, Torfaen and the Vale of Glamorgan.



The initiative by Literature Wales aims to engage as wide an audience as possible in the enjoyment and appreciation of literature over the next three years. Here are some of our latest projects….
