Now entering its fourth year the 2015 All Wales Comic Verse Competition continues to offer some of the largest cash prizes for any poetry competition in Wales, comic or otherwise. Appealing to a wide cross section of poets, previous entrants have included those short-listed for the Wales Book of the Year and the John Tripp Award for Performance Poetry as well as those writing just for fun.
Attracting competitors from all parts of the country, former finalists have traveled from Gwynedd, Wrexham and West Wales to compete. Taking place in the beautiful grounds of the historic Priory Hotel, as in previous years broadcaster and former “Newport Town Poet”, Goff Morgan will host the live performance final ably supported by renowned troubadour Pete AK
The competition forms part of the Celf Caerleon Arts Festival, “Literature on the Lawn” weekend.
