Review of Welsh Government’s support for literature underway

This press release was published under the 2011 - 2016 Welsh government

The Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Ken Skates, has announced an independent review of the Welsh Government’s support for publishing and literature in Wales.
Tuesday 15 March 2016

The review will look at the Welsh Government’s current cultural, social and economic aims in supporting the publishing industry and literature in Wales and whether these are being achieved.

It will also look at:

  • digital developments within the publishing industry and whether the current system of support is fit for the modern industry;
  • support for publishing and literature in disadvantaged areas across Wales.

The Deputy Minister said:

“We are proud of our support for Wales’ vibrant literary and publishing sector. However, we recognise that in recent years there have been some big changes, particularly with digital developments, and we need to be assured that our aims in supporting the industry are being achieved.

“I am particularly keen to see that our support is helping those living in disadvantaged areas. There are so many benefits to having access to and enjoying great literature – from boosting literacy skills to approving attainment – and it is vitally important that our investment is targeting these priority aims.”

The review will be chaired by Professor Medwin Hughes, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, and is expected to report its findings in September.

Panel

  • Professor Medwin Hughes (Chair)
  • Professor Elin Haf Gruffydd Jones (Vice Chair)
  • John Williams
  • Philippa Davies
  • Martin Rolph.
