Poetry London is a registered charity. We rely on a combination of statutory funding from Arts Council England, earned income, and donations from individuals to survive and continue our work.

Our magazine provides a crucial space for established and emerging poets to publish their work. We give poets an audience, in an environment in which this is an increasing challenge. Our reputation for quality and diversity attracts the best international work, and offers new poets the recognition they need to develop their careers.

All of our poets and reviewers are paid for their work. Our website offers a comprehensive listings service, allowing poets and poetry organisations to publicise readings, courses and events for free.

Our publications and events are a vital part of the contemporary poetry scene, providing a high profile platform for poets to share their work, and helping to ensure the continued importance of poetry in our culture.

Every year, we need to raise £50,000 to continue and develop our work. Your donations will enable us to succeed, helping us support established and emerging poets, promote the value of poetry, bring new works to an international audience, and develop a varied and vital culture of poetry in the UK.
