About

Since 2012, And Other Poems has been a place to read poems by different writers. It was set up  by Josephine Corcoran as  a not-for-profit, uncluttered, ad-free site.  The aim of And Other Poems 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elsewhere online, out of print poems, poems published in print but not online, competition poems, and new, previously unpublished poems.  All poets have given consent for their work to be featured and copyright remains with them. Submissions are by invitation or via submission windows which are posted here.

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

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 (see ‘News‘)
