Guest writer – Mark Tredinnick

On the 26th of March 2013 Mark Tredinnick travelled from Sydney, Australia to come to the Carmarthen campus of Trinity Saint David. Okay he hadn’t travelled just to come to Carmarthen, he was doing a tour of Wales.

Mark is a nature writer and has won the Montreal Poetry Prize (2011) and the Cardiff Poetry Prize (2012). He read from The Blue Plateau: A Landscape Memoir, Fire Diary, and The Lyrebird, and deconstructed a couple of his poems. Now I’m not a poet and I don’t understand poetry form far outside the sonnet, so a lot of what was said was far out of my comfort zone. But I did like his poetry.

So I thought I could try to recount what he said but I thought it pointless. Instead I will let Mark speak for himself.
