Founded in 1965, Poetry Wales is published triannually with an international reputation for excellent poems, features and reviews from Wales and beyond. Emerging from a rich bilingual culture, Poetry Wales explores the diverse perspectives of Welsh poetry in English and its international relationships.
Its interest in translation, and in local and national identities in a global context, are at the forefront of some of the most exciting developments in poetry today. The magazine is open to tradition and experiment, publishing poetry from a wide range of approaches. Against this background of dynamic contrast, it offers a lively and informed critical context for the best contemporary poetry.
The Poetry Magazines website features a page on PW, with three back issues available to view online: 29.1 (July 1993), 17.4 (Spring 1982), and the very first issue: 1.1 (Spring 1965). Click here to see the page and to read these historic issues.
Poetry Wales now has a Creative Partnership with Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Literature, Languages and Creative Arts.
