Wales continues to inspire new stories.
The latest is a piece for the Best Loved Hotels group to write the Wales copy for their new brochure — out 2017.
The story ties into the theme of myths and legends, which Wales will celebrate in the year ahead.
Here’s a preview:
Walkers love Offa’s Dyke but few know the legends surrounding the linear earthwork that forms its 82-mile-long backbone. Offa, the 8th-century King of Mercia built the dyke as a Saxon statement of intent against rebellious Welsh tribes. The ditch and high-earth ramparts subsequently ran with blood for three centuries of border skirmishes.
I’m now planning some new ideas around Welsh myths and legends for forthcoming commissions.
Got a suggestion for a story angle? Please get in touch.
The Offa’s Dyke copy will be published in the new Best Loved Hotels Directory 2017.
