Recently, we were treated to an excellent programme at this regional NWR event: three authors, a publisher and the dynamic CEO of Literature Wales.
Over a hundred participants, from as far afield as Sussex, gathered in Poynton, Cheshire on Saturday 25 March. We heard eminent clinicians Dr Jenny Myers and Professor Alistair Burns from the University of Manchester medical school talk about their research and practice.
Wales has a surprising amount of publishing houses for such a small country and many of their writers are female. At the NWR Cardiff-Newport Conference, we’ll be hearing from some of them as well as having a lovely lunch - all in beautiful surroundings of the Celtic Manor Resort.

This sensational event based on the theme of ‘Relatively Speaking’ was thoroughly enjoyed by over 300 members. It was held on the University of Sussex campus at Brighton in the Jubilee lecture hall and many members stayed in student accommodation onsite making everything accessible.
Around 24 women consisting of Local Organisers (LO), Area Organisers (AO), one trustee and some members who were representing their groups, all met at The Hilton Hotel in York for the first combined meeting organised by Natalie our National Organiser. The majority were from the North East, but some ladies had travelled over from Crewe and others from much further south in the country.
The spring 2016 issue of NWR Magazine is now out and we are really excited about this one! This issue contains interesting articles, the announcement of two new competitions, fashion advice, NWR history, a mini quiz and more!
