Dylan Thomas centenary for Visit Wales and Telegraph Travel



This year marks the centenary of the birth of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas [pictured above as part of Sir Peter Blake’s Llareggub exhibition].

I’ve been busily picking up commissions on the theme.

One of these projects was a series of blog posts for a microsite sponsored by Visit Wales and positioned within the Telegraph Travel site.

Each one of the short pieces – 100 posts for 100 years – focused on a narrow theme relating to Thomas.

I covered a range from his voice through to his often-forgotten sister, based on desk research, previous visits to Wales and interviews, bashing out roughly one per day for three weeks.
