Edward Lear Poetry Competition - Galle Literary Festival (GLF)

Edward Lear was an English artist and poet best known for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose, especially his limericks – a form he popularized. His poems can be characterized by his irreverent view of the world.  Inspired by Edward Lear, Owl and the Pussycat, a  pretty boutique Hotel in Galle offers the annual Edward Lear Prize for Poetry to support aspiring poets. It is presented every year in January, at the Galle Literary Festival. Our hotel has been the venue and the proud sponsor of the Festival, one of the most highly-anticipated literary events in southeast Asia.
