And Other Poems was founded in 2012 by Josephine Corcoran with the tagline “simply a blog of poems”. The poems are presented without commentary, laid out as the poet wishes with a link to a publisher’s site and the poet’s website at the foot of each post. The aim of And Other Poems was to publish poems which otherwise would not have been available online, for instance new, previously unpublished poems, out of print poems, poems published in print but not online, and competition poems not published anywhere.  All poets gave consent for their work to be featured and copyright remains with them.

For a full list of every poem, click on the index pages Index 2012 – 2016 and Index 2017-18.

In January 2015, The British Library requested permission to archive And Other Poems in its Open UK Web Archive (Special Collections – Blogs – Arts & Humanities – Literature).

In 2016 Emily Blewitt’s poem This Is Not a Rescue, first published by And Other Poems, was Highly Commended in the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem and published in the Forward Anthology.
