Poem published & cover photo in the 'Planet - The Welsh Internationalist' magazine, issue 250

Editor Emily Trahair at 'Planet - The Welsh Internationalist magazine' has published my poem Sanctuary in the May issue. The poem is about the concept of refuge and hiraeth - a Welsh word meaning a specific longing for one's homeland. The front cover also features a photo I took as a photojournalist while covering the protest against Cardiff council's proposed cutbacks that would have threatened library and museum services.
