‘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

Tower Poetry has published over ten books of poetry with our newest title Flowers From The Dark (the anthology from the 2016 Summer School) published in 2017.
Poetry features are put up on a monthly (approximately) basis: new poems, interviews, critical essays, and occasional reviews. Featured poets include Andrew Wynn Owen, 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.
