The M. Wynn Thomas Prize
The University of Wales Press is the sponsor of the M. Wynn Thomas prize for an outstanding essay in the field of Welsh Writing in English. It is an honour for UWP to be associated with this prestigious award which carries the name of Professor Thomas, who is globally recognised for his outstanding contribution to the field in Wales and beyond. The prize is attracting an increasingly international reach, with submissions for the 2014 prize received from Wales and also England, Ireland and the USA. The prize is awarded annually at the conference of the Association of Welsh Writing in English at Gregynog Hall, Powys.

What our Authors say about us:
UWP is keeping up to date with developments in Open Access, and following closely HEFCE’e recent consultation for monographs, and RCUK mandates for journals.
We will post details of UWP’s OA policy soon, but in the interim journal editors should be aware of RCUK’s requirement that any journal articles based wholly or partly on RCUK-funded research are required to be published in OA. Journal editors are therefore requested to ensure that researchers submitting articles for acceptance should state clearly if their article is RCUK-funded and inform UWP; once accepted for publication in the journal, and on submission of the mansucript to UWP, journal editors should please state clearly on the table of contents which, if any articles, are required to be published in OA.
