“Of all the places in South Wales from which one would least expect a literary review, Pembroke Dock would head the list…”                                  (South Wales Evening Post, Chwefror 1950)

Ymunwch â Mary-Ann Constantine ac Elizabeth Edwards wrth iddynt archwilio tudalennau cyfnodolyn llenyddol uchelgeisiol a hynod ddylanwadol a gychwynnwyd yn Noc Penfro ym 1949. Gan gyhoeddi cerddi gan awduron Cymreig megis R.S Thomas, Idris Davies a Dylan Thomas, datblygodd Dock Leaves i fod yn llais cenhedlaeth a oedd yn ysgrifennu yng Nghymru yn dilyn y rhyfel.
