Founded in 1965, Poetry Wales is the national poetry magazine of Wales. Wales’ foremost poetry magazine, Poetry Wales publishes internationally respected contemporary poetry, features and reviews in its triannual print and digital magazine in its mission to sustain and preserve the artistic works both inspiring our literary present and shaping our literary future.
Its interests 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 finest contemporary poetry.
In 2019 the magazine celebrated 55 years of publishing international contemporary poetry from its home in Bridgend, Wales.
Poetry Wales is currently hosting Wales Poetry Award, international poetry competition sponsored by Literature Wales, closing date 27 November 2020, and also Wales Young Poets Award / Gwobr Beirdd Ifanc Cymru for young poets aged 10-17 living in the UK, closing date 28 October 2020.
