Our Impact

Tŷ Newydd’s day to day work is to provide creative writing courses in English and Welsh to audiences from all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Our writers go on to publish their work, to win competitions, to perform their work in festivals and events, and to set up classes and writing groups of their own to educate others in their communities.

Our residential courses offers a total immersion, with workshops, readings and one-to-one mentoring sessions starting in the early morning and continuing into the evenings. Our residential courses allows you to enjoy the whole Tŷ Newydd experience, defined creatively by different individuals on our testimonial page. For some, spending time in the cosy library until the early hours discussing poetry is what makes their stay special. For others, it’s getting up early to walk down to the beach before workshops. Whatever are your experiences, you’ll leave with the skills, ideas and energy to continue with your writing.

In addition our course programme, we organise and run projects in the local community, in Gwynedd and north Wales. The aim of these projects is to use literature to improve health and wellbeing, a mission that is also central to all of our work at Tŷ Newydd.
