Now Playing: U.K. Poetry Society's Web Site
Topic: Poetry Web Sites


UK Poetry Society's web site displays excellent pages on the various activities for both members and non-members - on line and off line. This organization, based in London, was founded in 1909 by a group of poets, teachers, librarians, booksellers, journalists and simply lovers of poetry from all over the world.

  • Projects: This section is divided in sections like Poets in School, Poets in the City and Poetry Places.
  • Events: 2005 Translation Reading Series is inaugurated with translators' presentations - some of these events are free and others are for a fee.
  • Advice and Information Services: Exclusive info for members and an up-to-date notice-board of poetry news plus a general information page.
  • The Poetry Shop
  • England's Map of Poetry Places:This is one of the most important sections. Here are found links to poetry festivals, bookshops, poetry organizations, etc.
  • Resources
  • Forthcoming poetry titles
  • Education: This is a resourceful section for teachers. Of especial interest are: Poets in School and Poetryclass, a national programme of training for teachers. Check out their interactive website

The poetry contests on this site are very original. The most important one is the annual National Poetry Competition, open to anyone aged 18 and over and has an entry fee. Another is the thematic competition for members, promoted by the Society's seasonal magazine, Poetry Review. Some past issues' themes ranged from "Fire Poems" to "Kissing Poems". This summer issues' theme is "On the Tiles", and there is available an archive of past selected thematic poems on this site.
The Society also offers the ink and paper newsletter, Poetry News  which carries full details of its poetry activities, plus valuable advice for novice poets, interviews to noted poets, member's selected poems and much more. Some of the most important articles of this newsletter are posted on the site.
