Parthian Books/Dufour Editions

Rhian Saadat originates from south Wales, although her childhood was spent in Germany and Cyprus. Her writing is influenced by time spent working in the Middle East, and later, in southern Spain. Her poems have appeared in several anthologies and literary magazines. A first full collection of her poems is due to be published by Parthian.

About The Pterodactyl's Wing: Welsh World Poetry:

"In this new anthology of thirty-six poets from Wales, the underlying premise is that poetry reflects a state of astonishment before the world as well as the means for that astonishment. Within the ambiguous and half-ironic subtitle of 'Welsh World Poetry' is encapsulated the idea that while these poems are by Welsh writers, they largely represent an outward-looking identity, or at times an exile's view, written from beyond our borders and inciting a deeper reflection on what our poetry is and might be. The Pterodactyl's Wing presents an exciting and unique opportunity to read work by younger or lesser-known Welsh poets writing in English."
