Event Details

The first Welsh Poetry Competition was set up by poet & writer Dave Lewis in 2007.  Officially launched on St David’s Day @ Clwb-Y-Bont, Pontypridd, 2007 the aim is to encourage and foster the wealth of creative writing talent that we know exists in Wales but currently languishes in the doldrums. The aim is to inspire people to capture life in the present day and to give a voice to a new generation of poets and writers. We are not interested in purely academic types of literature but would much rather see pure raw passion burst onto the creative writing scene in Wales.

Poems can be written in any style and on any subject. There is also no age limit, although all poems will be judged together.
