Aneirin Karadog was born in Llanelwy (St Asaph) and raised in the valleys of South Wales (Pontardawe and Pontypridd). The son of a Welsh father and a Breton mother, he speaks five languages - Welsh, Breton, French, Spanish and English - and writes poetry in the strict Welsh meter called Cynghanedd and in free verse. He also raps multilingually with a Hip-Hop group called Y Diwygiad and Genod Droog. Aneirin won the National Urdd Eisteddfod Chair in the Millennium Centre, 2005. His poems have been released in various anthologies and he published a new joint collection of poetry with four other young Welsh poets entitled Crap ar Farddoni in 2006. He has also written a short story as part of Scriture Giovanni, a Europe wide project to connect young authors and has recently translated a poem by Bernardo Atxaga, a Basque poet known throughout the world.
