Menna Elfyn

Poet Menna Elfyn began writing at the age of 15, struck by the injustice of the Vietnam war and Treweryn Valley.

She talks about her journey as a woman writing in Welsh to acceptance as a serious poet.

And she recalls the stigma of writing about miscarriage in the 1970s and how activism saw her in prison twice.
