Poetry and Short Story Competition Winners Announced

The PENfro Book Festival is an annual event celebrating the quality and diversity of writing in Wales today, recognising the contribution of local publishers and booksellers, and encouraging more people to enjoy the wealth of books Wales offers. Held in the glorious setting of Rhosygilwen in Pembrokeshire, the festival aims to be friendly, informal and inviting to everyone from the casual to the most avid reader.

Mae Gŵyl Lyfrau PENfro yn ddigwyddiad blynyddol sy’n dathlu ansawdd ac amrywiaeth ysgrifennu yng Nghymru heddiw. Mae’n cydnabod cyfraniad cyhoeddwyr a gwerthwyr llyfrau lleol, ac yn annog mwy o bobl i fwynhau’r cyfoeth o lyfrau mae Cymru’n ei gynnig. Cynhelir yr ŵyl ym mhentref bendigedig Rhosygilwen yn Sir Benfro a nod yr ŵyl yw bod yn gyfeillgar, anffurfiol a deniadol tuag at bawb o’r darllenydd achlysurol i’r un mwyaf brwd.
