Reynolds, Elinor Wyn

Elinor Wyn Reynolds is a poet, author and editor. She was born in Treorchy, in the Rhondda Valley, and grew up in Carmarthen, west Wales. She was educated at University of Wales, Aberystwyth and Jesus College Oxford. Having lived in (almost) every corner of Wales, she is, once again, living in Carmarthen with her family.

Her first novel, Gwirionedd, was shortlisted for Wales Book of the Year 2020, and was also selected to our 2020–21 bookcase. Watch Elinor discuss and read from the novel here.
