Creator of ‘Gwrachod Heddiw’ podcast – Mari Elen – shares a piece of poetry with us
Mari Elen is a Playwright, Theatr-Maker, Artist and podcast Creator (#GwrachodHeddiw) who lives in North Wales with her partner and sons. She likes witches, cups of tea and Beyonce.
“I love people and learning more about them. The world would be a better place if people were to listen and learn from each others stories and experiences. Stories inspire me, and are a catalyst to begin creating. Usually, my work focuses on female stories and explores the idea of ‘Welshness’. I mostly write scripts, but I also benefit greatly from performing, writing poetry and learning more about witches.”

yn union fel

Achos ar hyn o bryd,
