Your chance to vote for Dylan's writing shed in new competition


People are being urged to vote for the Dylan Thomas mobile writing shed in a national competition.
It has been entered into the #shedoftheyear competition, run by www.Readersheds.co.uk.
The bespoke replica of Dylan’s writing shed in Laugharne has been made specially as part of the DT100 celebrations.
The interior and exterior recreation is as true to the original as possible, down to the wood panel walls and corrugated tin roof. It even has the curled pictures on the walls and the view over the estuary.
The shed has been created by Carmarthenshire County Council’s arts and culture department, which owns and manages Dylan’s famous Boathouse.
Principal Arts Officer Eleri Retallick said: “The shed allows people to experience the creative writing environment in which Dylan escaped into.
“It has become an educational tool and has been embraced by schools nationwide. It has become a visitor attraction in its own right and demand for the shed has been phenomenal. “Since its launch on the 14th February its UK tour will include 31 schools, Hay Festival, Wales Festival of Architecture, National Library of Wales, Brecon Jazz Festival and the Dylan Thomas Festival in London's Fitzrovia.
“This shed provides visitors with an insight into Dylan Thomas and is unique for 2014.”
The shed is now up against a wide variety of other sheds for the competition which traditionally attracts entries from across the UK.
