Literature Wales WBOTY Review


what we did

Literature Wales commissioned Mela to complete a review of its annual awards, Wales Book of the Year. The aim was to review the awards’ current business and administration models and provide a series of recommendations for their ongoing development.

how we did it

We employed a number of research methods during the review process including one-to-one interviews with key stakeholders in the Welsh literary sector, an online public survey and a sector panel review.  The results of the review were compiled in a final report presented to the Literature Wales board in May 2017.


The board accepted the report’s findings and many of the recommendations put forward were incorporated in to the planning and execution of the 2017 awards.
