Menna Elfyn on Eluned Phillips 29 OctoberBorn on the same day as Dylan Thomas, Eluned Phillips (1914 – 2009) was the only Welsh woman poet to win the Crown twice at the National Eisteddfod.

Like Dylan, she made a name for herself in America. She was also a scriptwriter, librettist, raconteur and friend to Augustus John, Picasso and Edith Piaf, amongst others.
