"From the 1950s on, new printing methods and technologies gradually pushed letterpress from state-of-the-art to a much more specialized niche, prized by moderns who treasure fine hand-work and letterpress' rich and tactile tradition." - Tryst PressBoth Welshman and Utahn, Norris taught writing at BYU for two decades, and has many published poems and stories to his credit, including 'Girl from Cardigan', 'The Loud Winter' and 'Ransoms'. Considered the most important Welsh writer of the postwar period, with a writing career that spanned decades. A candidate for poet laureate of England (which eventually went to Ted Hughes). A member of both the Welsh Academy and England's Royal Society of Literature and winner of the prestigious Cholmondeley Poetry Prize, Leslie Norris was a poet of the first order who will be greatly missed.
