Big in Poland

Polish literary magazine, Literatura na Swiecie, has just put out a special Welsh edition. Included are works by Peter Finch, and Robert Minhinnick, amongst others. They've also featured an interview I did with author Niall Griffiths, which is very nice of them.

Selecting a group of writers to represent Wales must have been an interesting task. Perusing the contents list I'd say that their chosen collection of Welsh lit has a kind of 'official' look about it. That's to say it is a tad on the conservative side.

Still, nothing wrong with a bit of cultural exchange. We get cool Polski skleps and Maciej Dakowicz - they get the dubious delights of Welsh poetry.
