On Being a Poet in Wales: Taz Rahman (Nation Cymru article)

 Wales' major independent digital newspaper Nation Cymru has featured an article by me that delves into the development of my poetry language, the impact of my mentor Zoe Brigley on my writing, and how important the two rivers Taff and Ely are to my poetry: https://nation.cymru/culture/on-being-a-poet-in-wales-taz-rahman/ My poem 'Bread of Heaven' about life around the river Taff is also in this article. My grateful thanks to Books Editor Jon Gower.
