“Sharing poetry as a vehicle for human intimacy”

Lennon, a visitor to The Poetry Exchange


Poetry is a place we can turn to for a deeper sense of connection with ourselves and with each other.

Through our work with poems as friends, The Poetry Exchange is nurturing a more intimate, open and profoundly human form of conversation in the world today.

As a small arts charity, we need your support to continue gathering and sharing these extraordinary stories of connection between people and poems, and to bring poetry into even more people's lives.

Any gift you are able to make to The Poetry Exchange will make a vital difference to our work, lifting up and sharing the power of poetry to heal, nourish and connect us.

With our profound thanks and love,

“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
