Ceri Elen wins the Literature Medal
Congratulations to Ceri Elen Morris, originally from Old Colwyn, on winning the Literature Medal at the Urdd National Eisteddfod in Carmarthen, 28 May 2007. Ceri Elen graduated with first-class honours in Welsh and English Literature from Cardiff University last year. At present she is studying Creative Writing as part of her MA in Welsh course at the School of Welsh, Cardiff University.
The adjudicators said that her work showed a 'daring imagination' which reminds one of the works of Aled Jones Williams. Ceri said that people are her great interest. She admitted that she is someone who enjoys watching people, and that watching people out and about in Cardiff was the inspiration for the work which won her the Literature Medal.
Ceri Elen won the Drama Medal at the Urdd National Eisteddfod in Denbighshire in 2006.
