    What is happening on International Dylan Thomas Day on May 14th

    The enthusiasm for International Dylan Thomas Day (Dylan Day for short) on May 14th continues to be strong and I’ve been energised to work hard and keep the date prominent on the annual literary calendar.   I have, once again, seen the passion and love there still is for my grandfather’s work and places.
    We have put together things people can do and events they can attend on, or close to, Dylan Day.   We have all the details on the discoverdylanthomas website, however I know some people prefer a list, which I have created for you below.  Locations are in bold and in alphabetical order and then in date order under each section. Online events are listed too.  You can go to the International Dylan Thomas Day page to find out more. You can download the logo and poster in both English and Welsh from there as well.
    We are still waiting for confirmation of other events, and welcome more from you too so please get in touch with me at hannah@discoverdylanthomas.com if your event is not yet listed. I will add any new ones to the website, the list below and the final press release but I hope this gives you an idea that the day will still be remembered and celebrated around the world.


    Don’t forget the Love the Words competition to create the world’s longest love poem is still open for entries.  The competition closes on Friday May 4 at midnight and the completed poem will be shared online on the Discover Dylan Thomas website on Dylan Day, May 14.  Read poet Mab Jones’s blog on how to create a great #LovetheWords entry.
