I was recently commissioned to write a short story, along with a few other writers, by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. It's purpose is to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Obviously I am proud to be one of the writers who contributed to this project as human rights are very high on my professional and personal agenda. Here is a note from the Equality and Human Rights Commission, and a link to the published stories. Welsh authors mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Everyone loves a good story. That's why we have teamed up with some of Wales' best writers to mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We asked authors such as Rachel Trezise, John Sam Jones and Nia Williams to write short stories that show how they feel human rights are important to people's everyday lives in Wales. We are delighted with what they have come up with. There is something for everyone in the collection, no matter what your age or interests.
The Commission aims to mark the 60th anniversary of the Declaration by encouraging the public to understand and celebrate human rights and the values that underpin them, namely fairness, dignity and respect.
We hope these stories get you thinking and talking about human rights.
