Don't be distracted by the title, the 'Welsh Poetry Competition' is an international poetry competition that has been running since 2007 and has brought some stunning poets to a wider audience. Fourteen years experience has enabled 'Publish & Print' a professional publishing arm to help poets get published.
Welsh Poetry Competition, Publish & Print and the International Poetry Book Awards is the work of Dave Lewis based in South Wales.
His own collection 'Mixed Messages' is available from Amazon and we will be reviewing it shortly.
