The first AWWE conference was held at Gregynog in 1986. For several years there was no central theme. The first themed conference was organized in 1993 by Tony Brown (Bangor University). Amongst the papers at that event was the first version of Wynn Thomas’s ‘R.S. Thomas: War Poet’ and Raymond Garlick also spoke.
