Angels and demons slink into sleepy Welsh villages. Whispers of a witch in Cwmgrach. A startling set of wings push through a young girl’s shoulderblades. An ancient secret breathes in an Irish heirloom.
For twelve years the Terry Hetherington Young Writers Award has provided a platform for emerging young writers from and living in Wales. This year Cheval 13 brings together a variety of the best short stories and poetry from young Welsh writers for the 2020 Terry Hetherington Award, showcasing a startling array of promising new voices in literature.
