The 2011 Laugharne Weekend kicks off today, returning for a fifth year and featuring some of the brightest stars on the Welsh literary scene.

Highlights include talks from Howard Marks and Jon Ronson, storytelling from Bright Young Things authors Susie Wild and Tyler Keevil, plus poetry from the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and Literature Wales chief and author of the Real Cardiff series Peter Finch.

Authors involved in Seren's New Stories from the Mabinogion series; Russell Celyn Jones, Owen Sheers and Niall Griffiths, will discuss their books in the series, while a film I wrote about a short time ago, Little White Lies, will also be screened.

Welsh actor Michael Sheen will give a talk (no doubt he'll mention his upcoming collaboration with National Theatre Wales, The Passion), plus there'll also be a production of Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood.

Our very own BBC Wales Music blogger Bethan Elfyn will present her Radio Wales show live from the festival between 6.30pm and 10pm on Saturday night.

Take a look at the complete line-up and programme of events on www.thelaugharneweekend.com, and keep up to date with the festival on Twitter.
