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poems (ie poems which might have been successful in a competition but are not available to read online) and new, unpublished poems.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 No details indicates this is a new, previously unpublished poem.
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).
