The Poetry Archive needs your help to secure our future.

When a poet dies without being recorded their unique voice and all their future readings of their poetry are lost. We need your help to enable us to to collect and preserve recordings of the great contemporary poets of our age, adding diversity and richness to the poetry we can bring into your homes and classrooms. Please help us to share your passion for poetry.

This vital resource and heritage can only succeed with your help and support.

The Poetry Archive is a registered charity and we are grateful to the generosity of donors, just like you, who help ensure we can share our collections freely.  Please consider joining as a Member of the Archive, or by making a donation of any size through these pages. We have a range of ways in which you can connect with and support our work - we would love you to be a part of our future.
