New Poetry Submissions Editor in Place (10-01-2018)

Emily Blewitt, Forward nominee and Seren poet, replaces Amy McCauley as New Welsh Review’s poetry editor
We are delighted to announce that Emily Blewitt is now in place as New Welsh Review’s poetry submissions editor. She also joins the management advisory board of the company.

Emily is the author of This Is Not A Rescue (Seren Books, 2017). She has published poetry in The Rialto, Poetry Wales, Ambit, and The North, among others, and was Highly Commended in the 2016 Forward Prizes. Emily read English Language and Literature at St Hilda’s College, Oxford, and has an MA in Film and Literature from the University of York. In 2010 she returned to Wales to begin a PhD in English Literature at Cardiff University, where she specialised in poetic representations of pregnancy in nineteenth-century and contemporary women’s writing, graduating in 2016. Emily has appeared at Hay Festival, on Radio 4, and participated in the Weird and Wonderful Wales project. One of her poems appears on public transport in three Chinese cities as part of a British Council initiative. Emily lives in Bridgend with her husband, Greg, and their fat black-and-white cat, Ozymandias.

Gwen Davies, New Welsh Review’s editor, said, ‘I welcome Emily and very much look forward to working with her closely in our poetry editorial meetings and on our board, where we will be preparing from the autumn for our franchise funding bid to the Welsh Books Council, to continue a secure footing for the magazine up to 2024.’
