Dr Simon Brooks (born 1971) is a Welsh academic and writer. He is a former editor of the Welsh language current affairs magazine Barn (1996–2007), as well as founding co-editor of the Welsh language cultural magazine Tu Chwith between 1993 and 1996. A collection of his journalism in Barn was published in 2009. He is also a founding member of the Welsh language pressure group Cymuned, for whom he was a prominent media spokesman between 2001 and 2004, and whose central office he ran. He was a lecturer at the School of Welsh, Cardiff University.
Brooks belongs to a family that supports the Labour Party but is himself a Welsh Nationalist. He left Plaid Cymru in the first decade of the 21st century, after being openly critical of Dafydd Elis-Thomas and rejoined ten years later when his friend Leanne Wood became party leader.
