Our Partners

AM is a multi-media platform celebrating and sharing cultural creativity from Wales.

AM was launched in March 2020 by PYST with financial support from the Welsh Government. The platform is both a website – – and app optimised for mobile and tablet devices. It consists of different channels representing the broad spectrum of culture in Wales.

AM aims to provide a platform that reflects the inclusive, varied creativity of modern Wales and create new audiences to enjoy its culture.

All of the free events on our 2021 programme will also be streamed via AM. is an online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops.

They believe that bookshops are essential to a healthy culture. They’re where authors can connect with readers, where we discover new writers, where children get hooked on the thrill of reading that can last a lifetime. They’re also anchors for our high streets and communities.

As more and more people buy their books online, we wanted to create an easy, convenient way for you to get your books and support bookshops at the same time.

By design, over 75% of their profit margin is given away to stores, publications, authors and others who make up the thriving, inspirational culture around books!

Books by all of the authors taking part in the Seren Cardiff Poetry Festival 2021 can be found on our affiliate page.
