Poetry Space provides a platform for the very best

in contemporary poetry from around the world

Established in 2010, Poetry Space is a social enterprise, with all profits being used to widen participation in poetry and to empower people through creativity. Poetry Space is not just about writing poetry and getting published. It is about spending time doing something creative that you enjoy for its own sake. Or bringing joy into someone else’s life by sharing an activity with them.

Please take time to browse this website and enjoy what it has to offer. We are currently taking submissions for  Poetry Space Quarterly Showcase and Poetry Space online workshops whilst we continue to work on other projects in the pipeline.

Please do not send in manuscripts for books or pamphlets throughout 2017 as these will not be considered. We are currently working on completing existing projects. As many will know my son Mark died this year and print publications are behind schedule. Please support us by buying one of the lovely books or gifts from the online shop, by entering Poetry Space annual competition or by joining friends of poetry space. 

The deadline for submission to Poetry Space Spring Showcase is February 10th. There will be a guest editor.

Join us at friends of poetry space – just £25 per year and great value
