Andrew Challis, otherwise known as Challis Musings, is a poet from Merthyr Tydfil. He started writing poetry and posting it on social media platforms during the pandemic, in the hope of brightening up other’s lives during dark times, and for his own sanity too, in a way. His poetry has been well and widely received ever since, including endorsements by Welsh celebrities and sports stars he’s written about. He released a Wales Six Nations-themed poetry book in 2021, and read some of his poetry at Y Wal Goch Football Festival in Wrecsam in November 2022 before the World Cup. His work can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and sometimes Instagram.
