The Poetry Society

Our mission is to advance the study, use and enjoyment of poetry.

The Poetry Society is Britain's leading voice for poets and poetry. Founded in 1909 to promote 'a more general recognition and appreciation of poetry', the Society is now one of the country's liveliest arts organisations with nearly 4,000 members worldwide.

With innovative education, commissioning and publishing programmes, and a packed calendar of performances, readings and competitions, the Poetry Society champions poetry in its many forms.
