Poetry London is an arts charity and international poetry magazine where acclaimed contemporary poets share pages with exciting new names. Published three times a year in February, May and September, each issue contains new poetry, incisive reviews and features. From modest beginnings in 1988, when it was a listings newsletter, Poetry London has developed into one of the UK's leading poetry magazines.

Both a national and international magazine, Poetry London features poems, reviews and work in translation from London, Europe, America, and other parts of the world. Its aim is to attract the best poems by the best poets currently writing in English as well as identify and foster emerging writers, providing a space in its issues to poets who have yet to publish a first collection.

The archive features original publications by Nobel Prize–winner Seamus Heaney, UK Poet Laureate Simon Armitage and former Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, former US Poets Laureate Billy Collins and Kay Ryan, Oxford Professor of Poetry Alice Oswald, and Forward Prize–winners Ocean Vuong, Kei Miller, and Danez Smith, as well as poems by the likes of Carolyn Forché, Kwame Dawes, Sarah Howe, Fred D’Aguiar, and Karen Solie.

The fully-searchable archive goes back to Autumn 1996, and subscribers will have access to over 60 back issues as well as all new issues to come. Digital only annual subscriptions can be bought by clicking the Add to basket button below.
