"A big box of marvels, abuzz with distinctive voices and vivid tales. This is dazzling testament to the ability of Creative Writing groups to energise and inspire." Alan Bilton


Some collections serve to mark particular events or milestones, whilst others contain work of the highest quality. This collection manages both of these things, with 75 pieces of poetry, creative non-fiction, and short fiction by local writers celebrating 75 years of creative writing in this fabulous city of the arts.

Cardiff Writers’ Circle was formed in 1947 and is joined here by other local writing groups, all lending their imaginations to a wide variety of styles, genres, and formats. Poignant, playful, satirical, and acutely observed, this anthology is a showcase for the fantastic talent that exists today in Cardiff, city of the dragon.
