Westival International Poetry Competition: Winners Reception

 Grove House // 26 Oct // 20:00 

Literature has been a core strand of the festival since its inception in 1976, so we were delighted to bring back the Westival International Poetry Competition after a two year hiatus, where we celebrate new voices alongside world renowned poets.  

We received over 300 entries this year, huge thanks as ever to the wonderfully generous adjudicators Nuala O'Connor, Ger Reidy, and Geraldine Mitchell, for their time and thoughtful consideration of each of these entries to the competition.

 A big thank you also to everyone who entered and many congratulations to this year's winners and highly commended poets - we look forward to seeing you at a reception in the stunning Grove House. You are all invited to join for some words, some wine, and of course, some poetry.
