UEA alumna Fflur Dafydd has been shortlisted for the Best Drama Series award at the Celtic Media Festival for 35 Diwrnod, her Welsh-language drama series which is now in its fourth series for S4C. Fflur writes across genres in both her native Welsh and in English. She graduated from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) in 2000 and has since written for stage, screen and radio, as well as recording and touring widely as a musician. Her first Welsh-language novel Lliwiau Liw Nos (Colours by Night) was published in 2005 and shortlisted for the National Eisteddfod Prose Medal. It was followed in 2006 by her second novel Atyniad (Attraction), which won the award. Her first English-language novel Twenty Thousand Saints was published in 2008 and won the Oxfam Hay Prize for Emerging Writers. The White Trail was first published in 2011 by Seren as part of a series of contemporary reimaginings of the Mabinogion and was longlisted for the 2019 New Welsh Writing Awards. Lloerganiadau, her Welsh-language memoir, was published last year by Y Lolfa. Fflur lectures in creative writing at Swansea University.
