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.  Today it has more than 4000 members worldwide and publishes The Poetry Review.

With innovative education and commissioning programmes and a packed calendar of performances, readings and competitions, The Poetry Society champions poetry for all ages.

@PoetrySociety Rossetti lets herself down by "If I were a wise man / I would do my part", a fatal bit of vagueness that suggests she either can't think what a wise man would do or is just heading for the nearest rhyme. Retweeted by The Poetry Society
