Cymru & I – Emily Price & Siriol Griffiths


In Cymru & I ten new writers look at what Wales means to them as people from backgrounds previously largely under-represented. Their various viewpoints make this book a new look at Wales, or show a Wales for the most part hidden: a Wales unwritten. Here are essays on identity, integration, the power of language to welcome or divide, acceptance, personal aspiration, civic decline, and hill walking. Wales is the first official Nation of Sanctuary.

Among the contributors are those who have sought sanctuary: immigrants – current and first or second generation – neurodivergent people, members of the LGBT community and of working-class communities. Cymru & I is made of ten very human stories about Wales and the many different kinds of Welshness it encompasses. It is published in collaboration with Inclusive Journalism Cymru, an organisation committed to creating opportunities for and representing writing from communities in Wales conventionally under-represented in publishing.
