Editorial Highlights Podcast Winter 2014 issue
In audio format, Gwen Davies presents the editorial highlights of NWR 106, which takes the theme of tourism. In this issue, Niall Griffiths visits the South Atlantic island of St Helena and learns the respective privileges of the tourist and the invited writer; Mary-Ann Constantine traces the origins of Wales’ current psychogeography boom to Thomas Pennant’s 1784 A Tour in Wales; ‘A Lovely, Ugly Year’ is Chris Moss’ assessment of the Dylan Thomas centenary, particularly in terms of literary tourism, and editor Gwen Davies, taking the examples of Under Milk Wood and Y Gwyll/Hinterland, argues that rather than being an enemy of art, local commerce, including tourism, should in certain cases be welcomed as its ally. The winter edition is out on 1 December.
