Wales Book of the Year 2015 | 09-Jun-15

At this year's Literature Wales awards, the winner of the Roland Mathias Poetry Award 2015 was So Many Moving Parts (Bloodaxe Books) by Tiffany Atkinson, an eccentric meditation on the awkwardness of body and spirit and their unexpected, often unwanted intrusions into everyday life. 

The winner of the Poetry category for Welsh-language books was Un Stribedyn Bach (Gwasg Carreg Gwalch) by the Chaired poet Rhys Iorwerth.

Poet Jonathan Edwards won the Wales Arts Review People?s Choice Prize with his collection My Family and Other Superheroes (Seren).
