Publishers Parthian Books and Bee Books are collaborating on The Valley, The City, The Village, a project in which six writers from Wales and India explore each other’s countries and use these experiences to provoke and inspire new writing.
Each group of writers has toured the other nation, and the project has already seen a new Welsh book launched at the Kolkata Book Fair in India and group appearances at Hay and Llansteffan Festivals, as well as a residency at Ty Newydd in North Wales, among many other public events spanning across Wales. A special edition of Wales Arts Review was published following the Welsh writers’ tour of India in spring 2017
The project will culminate in a trilingual publication of new writing in Bengali, English and Welsh.
