Gwyneth Lewis is one of Wales’s premier poets. Her books of poetry have won awards in both languages, Welsh and English. In 2005 she was appointed the first National Poet of Wales, and the inscription she wrote is on the front of the Wales Millennium Centre. Her recent book-length poem, A Hospital Odyssey, is based on her experience as writer-in-residence at the University Hospital of Wales. She is also the author of two non-fiction works: Sunbathing in the Rain: A Cheerful Book About Depression and Two in a Boat: A Marital Voyage.
