After 55 years of publishing contemporary poetry, features and reviews in 212 issues (and counting) of its magazine, today Poetry Wales launches Wales Poetry Award, a national competition to discover the very best international poetry. This competition is open to English-language submissions from poets aged 17 and above, from Wales and beyond. A £5 entry fee applies per poem and you may submit up to 5 poems. Thanks to our sponsor Aberystwyth University, entries are free for UK residents from low-income backgrounds, from households earning £16,000 or less per annum. Poems will be judged on the quality of writing and their poetic impact.
Read the full list of rules, pay your entry fee and submit your entry through our Wales Poetry Award page. Closing date 28 November 2019.
