National Poetry Day 2023

To celebrate National Poetry Day 2023, we wanted to highlight some of our favourite poets and poetry collections. Firstly, here are some of the wonderful poets we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming to the shop for our Poetry in Herons series, as well as a few at whose events we have been lucky enough to be booksellers. Our next event in the shop features Carrie Etter and Emma Jones on Saturday 21st October.

We also wanted to give you a selection of some great contemporary collections and translations. Happy National Poetry Day!
