POETS and poetry lovers celebrated 10 years of the Ipswich Poetry Feast at the 2012 Poet's Breakfast event launch in Walloon yesterday.

A crowd of 120 applauded the opening of the 10th annual feast and enjoyed breakfast while listening to recitals from 26 poets.

Poetry Feast committee chairman David Pahlke said this year's breakfast was the best attended in the event's history.

"I think this year being the 10th anniversary is a coming of age," Cr Pahlke said.

"We had three professional poets and the ex-arts minister Matt Foley attend, so it's definitely seen as a prestigious event.

"Every year we have competition entries from overseas and last year we had a record number of entries."

The Ipswich Poetry Feast competition will remain open for entries until Friday, July 27.
