Publications for Holly Cross
Holly Cross Soon after her birth in Carmarthen in 1981, Holly and her family left Wales for Somerset. Whilst a certain 'Welshness' was ever-present in her identity, the West Country retained its sense of home for her until she returned to Wales to study at Swansea University, where she took an English degree followed by an MA in Creative Writing taught by Welsh writers. Wales' wilder landscape and proud creative tradition appealed to a young woman whose inspiration and drive has always come from a connection with the earth and the struggle to communicate the need to care for it. Although, post university, Holly is often in Pembrokeshire, where her parents have now settled, she is currently now travelling around Britain and mainland Europe in pursuit of her muse, while working for community projects and organic farms.
