Welsh Poetry Competition
The first international Welsh Poetry Competition was set up by Welsh 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.
“We aim 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.”
The competition has received entries from as far a field as Abu Dhabi, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Corfu, Denmark, England, France, India, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Israel, Kenya, Kuwait, New Zealand, Pakistan, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Swaziland, Taiwan, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, USA and Vietnam as well as Wales of course.
The competition is totally independent and financed purely by the organisers and does not receive any grants, bursaries or funding from any external agencies whatsoever.
With great Welsh writers such as John Evans, Mike Jenkins, Sally Spedding and Eloise Williams judging the competition it is already one of the most well respected in the country.
Unlike many poetry competitions there are no filter judges, and so every single poem is read and judged honestly, giving everyone the same chance of success.
Dave has also published two fantastic anthologies of the best poems. The first book contains the winning entries from from 2007-2011 and the second book covers the years 2012-2016.
