We would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate all our competitors. 2016 was undoubtedly one of the best years yet for our Poetry Competition both in terms of the quantity and quality of entries. Our judge, Peter Thabit Jones has reached a decision and his adjudication appears below:-
Americymru/West Coast Eisteddfod On-line Poetry Competition (English language) 2016
I enjoyed reading all of the entries for this year’s poetry competition. I was particularly impressed by the poems of Tracy Davidson, Paul Steffan Jones , Hilary Wyn Williams, Kathryn Dillard, Nancy E. Wright, James Sinclair, and Meic Alger.
The winner of this year’s poetry competition is Tracy Davidson . I like the control, the careful casualness, of the poems she entered and her quiet but very effective poetic voice.
Details of next years competitions will be announced shortly and we hope that all our 2016 entrants will consider competing again in the new year. We will be contacting the winners and runners up of the poetry and short story competitions via email shortly.
