“Seren is Wales’ leading independent literary publisher, specialising in English-language writing from Wales. With a list spanning poetry, fiction and non-fiction, many of our books are shortlisted for – and win – major literary prizes across the UK and America.

We approached Alternative Stories with the idea of setting up an in-house podcast to highlight our poetry list after working with them on a number of individual episodes for the Alternative Stories and Fake Realities podcast. Chris undertook all aspects of setup and production for The Seren Poetry Podcast, including procuring the kit to set up a mini studio at our office in Bridgend. He connected new microphones, which he supplied, to the Garage Band software we already had on our Mac computers and provided training and a set of notes on how to use the kit.

Chris also did all the recording and interviewing for season one of The Seren Poetry Podcast, much of it on location in Scotland and the north of England. He then edited the recordings to turn them into fully produced podcast episodes. He was supportive throughout the launch of the podcast and continues to keep in touch. We now have all the kit, expertise and software we need to make more podcasts on our own and Chris’s support throughout the process has been invaluable.”
