The Poetry Society

The Poetry Society was founded in 1909 to promote “a more general recognition and appreciation of poetry”. Since then, it has grown into one of Britain’s most dynamic arts organisations, representing British poetry both nationally and internationally. 

A charitable organisation, we provide support, information and merchandise for specialists and the general public. We engage with and support diverse poetry audiences.

You can join The Poetry Society as a youth member and receive a host of benefits – find out more here.
