Donating to The Poetry Exchange

“The Poetry Exchange, is to my mind and ears, unique – a space where readers of poetry can describe, articulate – share – why a particular poem matters to them. It’s a way of talking about and thinking about poetry that takes it out of the academic and directly into people’s lives.” Rishi Dastidar

Since 2013, The Poetry Exchange has been uncovering and sharing the diverse and extraordinary ways in which poetry plays a part in people’s lives.

The Poetry Exchange is free for people to experience – from visiting our exchanges around the UK and worldwide, to listening in to these extraordinary conversations through our award-winning podcast (Silver Winner, British Podcast Awards 2018).

To help us sustain our work, we are asking you –  our friends, followers, visitors, readers, listeners – to consider making a gift to The Poetry Exchange at this stage.

Any gift you make – whether a single donation or monthly contribution – will make a genuine and significant difference to the work we do, to celebrate the power of poetry in people’s lives.

To say thank you, we will offer anyone who makes a donation to The Poetry Exchange:

  • a personalised reading of the poem of your choice – for yourself, a friend or a loved one.
  • a special ‘extra’ episode of The Poetry Exchange podcast each year.

We are SO grateful for all the ways you support The Poetry Exchange – from listening to and sharing our podcast, to introducing us to the poems in your life, to passing on the friends that you meet along the way.

A huge THANK YOU for all your support.
