Perhaps the most famous Welsh writer, Dylan Thomas, was born 100 years ago and this year will see big celebrations of his life and work.
He was a big celebrity: a poet and playwright who made words sound like music. People would be reduced to tears as they heard his writing performed.
This weekend sees a big party in the small Welsh village of Laugharne (pronounced 'Larn') where he wrote many of his poems.
It's a place that had a big influence on a lot of Dylan's writing.
Nel reports from Laugharne on why he's still so well-loved today.
