Online poetry and short story competition for the Left Coast Eisteddfod.

The Welsh social network site AmeriCymru is running a poetry and short story writing competition as part of its online Eisteddfod.

What is an Eisteddfod? An Eisteddfod is a Welsh festival of literature, music and performance with a history dating back to at least the 12th century.

Though they have waned in popularity in the USA they are still very much a part of the popular culture in Wales, Australia, New Zealand and parts of Canada, Argentina and South Africa.

The National Eisteddfod of Wales is now the largest festival of competitive music and poetry in Europe. Over 6000 people competed at the 2006 National Eisteddfod with 150,000 visitors attending.

In August 2009, hoping to revive the fortunes of the Eisteddfod in the United States, AmeriCymru will host the first ever Left Coast Eisteddfod in Portland, Oregon.

The festival will feature live music, poetry readings from a number of top Welsh performers and writers and much more.
