‘Poetry is about saying real things memorably, and getting the better of language’s tendency towards inexactitude and vacuity.’ Peter McDonald, Professor of British and Irish Poetry, University of Oxford, Christopher Tower Student and Tutor in Poetry in the English Language, Christ Church
Books & Publications
Tower Poetry has published over ten books of poetry with our newest title Something to be Said (the anthology from the 2014 Summer School) published in October 2015.
Poetry features are put up on a monthly (approximately) basis: new poems, interviews, critical essays, and occasional reviews. Featured poets include Steve McGregor, Angela Leighton, David Wheatley, Paul Abbott, Bohuslav Reynek, Tess Somervell and Chloe Stopa-Hunt. We will be announcing the first of our teams of guest-editors for this section of the website shortly. Until then, please do not send submissions. A decade of Tower Poetry reviews is now available here.
