For their New Welsh Writers series, The Cardiff Review's Jamie Gillingham interviewed Roberto Pastore (Hey Bert) about all things writing. The series 'speaks to new voices in Welsh literature, delving into how they got their start and what advice they might have for other emerging writers.'
Roberto talks about his writing routine, his inspirations, and his experience of the route into publishing.
'A lot of the initial spark for Hey Bert came from exploring feminist performance, nature and video art from the 1970s; artists and writers like Mary Beth Edelson, Ana Mendieta, and Ewa Partum. How they use the intensely personal to make a statement, that is really inspiring to me.'
