Aneirin Karadog was born in Llanelwy (St Asaph) and raised in the valleys of South Wales. The son of a Welsh father and a Breton mother speaks five languages – Welsh, Breton, French, Spanish and English – and writes poetry in the strict Welsh meter called Cynghanedd and in free verse. He also raps multilingually with a Hip-Hop group called »Y Diwygiad«.
Karadog was awarded the distinguished scholarship in the Royal National Eisteddfod. His poems have been released in various anthologies and he has won the National Urdd Eisteddfod Chair. He published a new joint collection of poetry with four other young Welsh poets entitled »Crap ar Farddoni« in 2006.
