Get Creative Weekend – Book Creu Launches

Literature Wales teamed up with Vale of Glamorgan Libraries on the BBC’s Get Creative Weekend to launch Book Creu at Llantwit Major Library. This is a new kind of book club that’s about getting stuck in and creating as well as reading. The theme of the first club meeting was graphic novels. Illustrator Osian Grifford ( and performance poet and writer Mike Church led the session, helping the club create their own ‘zines – eight page miniature graphic novels that can be made from one sheet of A3 paper.

All kinds of wonderful stories filled the ‘zines such as a Humpty Dumpty who kicked everyone off his wall, a shepherd who might be roasted by his own sheep, and a book that captures stories, keeping them trapped inside.
