6th April, 2017



 New Welsh Review in association with Aberystwyth University is delighted to announce the longlist for the New Welsh Writing Awards 2017: Aberystwyth University Prize for Memoir.

New Welsh Review editor Gwen Davies judged both categories with help from students from Aberystwyth University.

Congratulations to our long listed writers below:

Maria Apichella (Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk) The Red Circle  

A daughter’s Pennsylvania road-trip with her Italian-American father is taken to help reconcile him with his mother. A red and black oil painting and the father’s hospital visit frame evocative settings of forest and former coalmines, while this memoir is warmed by delightful exchanges with a cast of far-flung relatives.
