Discovering Poetry

Welcome to Discovering Poetry, a free online poetry resource for teachers and students.

As well as being a hub for teaching and learning resources, we love to hear from creative writers of all ages who have written poems. We’re currently collecting poems to feature on our website. You must have written the poem yourself or have permission from the author, and you will retain all copyright. If you want to submit a poem, please contact us.

We love tips relating to learning about or teaching poetry, so if you have any advice or want to submit any resources, we’d love to hear from you. The kinds of things we’re looking for are copyright-free worksheets, short essays on writing about poetry, your favourite poetry books, exam tips, ideas for projects and similar. Please fill out our contact form and we’ll get back to you.

We’d like to thank the following websites and people for their contributions to Discovering Poetry’s content and development: MC, Single Shot.
