Check out the poem-a-day feature at the Academy of American Poets, who have been posting posting poems by Black poets throughout the summer.

Another rich resource of contemporary poetry is Anthony Wilson’s online anthology (also a Bloodaxe book), Lifesaving Poems, featuring over 150 poets of all styles and voices.



You can find a fascinating and deeply rich resource of poetry in translation at the Poetry Translation Centre. Check our their growing list of poets here.Poems

Finally, take a look at the Poetry Business’ blog pages here. It includes news, competition updates, interviews and much more. Check out their New Poets Prize in particular.


Wishing you all a happy summer and good reading!
