Elgan Rhys

"The best thing about reading for me is the freedom and the ability to imagine and visualise the world created by the writer, for yourself."

Elgan Rhys is a writer-director-performer and one of Stonewall Cymru's role models. Elgan is also creative editor of Y Pump, a five-novel box set from five young authors, their individual stories interweaving as they follow five friends at high school who discover the power of their 'otherness' when they come together as a community.
