We widen poetry’s audience, honour achievement and support talent: our initiatives include co-ordination of National Poetry Day and the year-round national campaign for poetry, research and advocacy, the Forward Prizes for Poetry and the Forward Book of Poetry.


Our mission is:

  • To deepen public appreciation of poetry’s value
  • To increase poetry’s audience
  • To celebrate excellence in poetry
