Welsh Poetry Competition 2011
The 5th international Welsh Poetry Competition (2011) aims to encourage and reward the abundance of creative writing talent that exists in Wales but finds difficulty getting recognition. If you love writing, love poetry, are passionate and truly care about one of the greatest art forms in the world, the Welsh Poetry Competition want to hear from you!
They are independent and do not use filter judges. All entries are judged anonymously by the judge - Welsh novelist, poet and short fiction writer, and former winner of the competition Sally Spedding.
Prizes: 1st Prize - £300, 2nd Prize - £150 and 3rd Prize - £75.
To enter you need to compose a poem, in English, of less than 50 lines and send to the competition organizers. Entry forms are available by post, can be downloaded from the website or picked up from Wales’ libraries. It costs £3 to enter and the closing date is Sunday 29th May 2011.
