And Other Poems is a place to read poems by different writers. It was created in August 2012 by Josephine Corcoran.  The aim of this site is to give readership to poems which would not otherwise be available, for instance poems no longer elsewhere online, out of print poems, poems published in print but not online, competition poems (ie poems which might have been successful in a competition but are not available to read online) and new, unpublished poems.  All poets have given consent for their work to be featured and copyright remains with them. Previous publication details are given after each poem. No details indicates this is a new, previously unpublished poem.

For a full list of every poem on this site click on the index pages Index 2012 – 2016 and Index 2017 onwards.

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 (see ‘News‘)

  1. This may not be the place to ask this but I can’t find anywhere else – please could you advise me how to submit poems for your consideration, or is this not how its done?

    • Hi Chris, There was an open submissions window in May. Submissions are currently closed. If you follow the site, you will know when the next window will be and, in addition, I post updates on the ‘News’ page. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Josephine

  2. Hi Josephine, not sure if it’s the right place for this either but I’ve had 19 ‘And Other Poems’ poems arrive in my inbox today. Is that right, or is there something weird going on? I’ve never had that happen before. Are you suddenly posting loads of new ones?

    • Ah, that’s a beautifully understanding and encouraging response, Lesley! Thank you 🙂 I hope you enjoy the poems which, as someone has pointed out, mark the light and the dark in Irish history. – Josephine
