Welsh Poetry Competition Results

The results, winning poems and judges comments for the Welsh Poetry Competition are now online. Another entry fee wasted, well not really, the thrill of waiting, the hope of fame, the chance of a fortune! (OK that's enough, buy a lottery ticket instead!).

As far as I can see the only Irish interest is the appearance of Richard Halperin's poem Mr Selvridge sketches at no 10. The specially commended poems are ranked 4 to 20, a nice touch not seen elsewhere. Richard has just published his first collection. His reading at the goldsmith Festival this year was impressive. He's also commended in the iYeats Poetry Competition.
