Children's Poet - 07 June 2007

During a ceremony at the Urdd Eisteddfod in Carmarthen, it was announced that Caryl Parry Jones is the new Bardd Plant Cymru - the Welsh-language Children's Poet Laureate. The project is a joint venture between S4C, the Welsh Books Council, the Urdd and Academi, with the aim of promoting poetry amongst children and teenagers and to encourage them to enjoy and compose their own poems. As well as writing a number of specific poems of her own during the year, Caryl will be visiting schools throughout Wales as well as organising poetry workshops by e-mail.
