Provides a platform for expression in literature, poetry or storytelling for refugees and the dispossessed

Hiraeth works with refugees and the dispossessed to provide a platform for expression in literature, poetry or storytelling. We offer regular readings, discussion sessions, and help with writing, translating and publishing. The aim is to create a network of support writers who, for any reason, feel marginalised.

Hiraeth is a Welsh word with no English translation. It’s something more than homesickness – a mixture of nostalgia and desire. One definition is “a homesickness for a home you cannot return to, or that never was.”
