User Bio

Set up by T S Eliot and friends in 1953 ‘to propagate the art of poetry’, the Poetry Book Society is a unique poetry society, providing information, reviews and discounts on the best contemporary poetry for an international community of readers.

The Poet Selectors choose the best new poetry collection of the quarter, which is sent to full members as part of their membership. All members also receive the Bulletin, the quarterly review of new poetry, which contains the Poet Selectors' reviews of the Choice and Recommendations and the selected poets' comments on their own work.

The Poetry Book Society also runs the T S Eliot Prize and the Poetry Bookshop Online, the world's only niche online poetry bookshop. For more info go to poetrybooks.co.uk or poetrybookshoponline.com.
