Wrexham Library 
£8 

A conversation with Hanan Issa, National Poet of Wales, on the power of creativity and how poetry makes sense of the world. As a mixed race artist, Issa weaves together histories, myth and language from her different cultures and experiments with form as her work spans poetry, prose, film, and performance. Her publications include her poetry collection My Body Can House Two Hearts and Welsh Plural: Essays on the Future of Wales. Her winning monologue With Her Back Straight was performed at the Bush Theatre as part of the Hijabi Monologues. She is part of the writersroom for Channel 4’s award-winning series We Are Lady Parts. Hanan is co-founder of the Where I’m Coming From open mic series and has been awarded the Cymrawd Rhyngwladol Cymru Greadigol Hay Festival 2022-23/Hay Festival Creative Wales International Fellowship 2022-23
