With the TCWA coming up we thought now would be a good opportunity to add some information on this site on our Young Critics who form part of the panel for the TCWA.
The Scheme is open for young people from 5-25 and is free.
Ar hyn o bryd dwi’n astudio ar gyfer MPhil yn yr Adran Gymraeg yn Aberystwyth, ond dwi’n dod o Aberdâr yn wreiddiol. Dwi newydd ymuno â’r Beirniad Ifainc ac wrth fy modd yn adolygu digwyddiadau llenyddol, cerddorol a’r theatr yng Nghymru.
I’m from Aberdare but currently studying for an Mphil in the Welsh department in Aberystwyth. I’ve recently joined Young Critics and enjoy reviewing literature, music and theatre events in Wales.
I am currently studying my first year of a degree for Theatre And Drama at Glamorgan University.
My eventual goal is to become a theatre/performance critic enabling me to write for magazines and websites.
You’ll always find me with a notepad and pen while attending productions at Chapter, WMC, The New Theatre and other localised events.
I enjoy writing about others’ work and I find it encourages and influences my methods when I take to the stage to deliver a performance
I run a not-for-profit Writing Group, ‘Scribblers’ – we meet once a month to share all types of writing, give and gain feedback, and generally have a jolly nice time🙂
I LOVE editing others’ writing, and am always open to submissions from budding screen or prose writers.
I’ve completed a BA(hons) in Creative Writing with Film Studies, and an MA in Creative and Critical Writing, which have given me the ability to critique creative work, as well as create it.
Most recently, I’ve been working behind the scenes on short and feature and films, which we hope will premiere in 2013.

Stage Editor, Buzz | Young Critc | Part Time Civil Servant (to feed my theatrical and literary habits😉 )
I have completed a BA in Media and Modern Literature and an MA Creative and Media writing.
Currently the Stage Editor for Buzz Magazine and juggling a job to pay the bills.
Always on the look out for new shows or new idea’s, let me know!
I am currently an A Level student at Stanwell School in the Vale of Glamorgan. I study media along with psychology and Product design. I hope to be going on to study media communications this September. I have my own personal blog in which I write about my favourite artists or songs in the music Industry. I enjoy deconstructing and analysing media texts; and being a part of young critics has allowed me to pursue this further.
