Literature Competition 2009

To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Alexander Cordell’s international best seller – Rape of the Fair Country – the annual Alexander Cordell Literature Competition asked writers to create a travel story to inspire people to visit this special part of Wales - a story about people and places celebrating history and culture.
