About The Poetry Review

The Poetry Review is the Poetry Society's internationally-acclaimed quarterly poetry magazine. Founded in 1912, it has published major names – such as Hardy, Auden and Ginsberg, Duffy, Heaney and Muldoon – alongside new and unpublished poets. With more than 100 pages of poetry, essays, reviews and comment, The Poetry Review is the indispensable guide to contemporary poetry. Members of the Poetry Society receive The Poetry Review four times a year, with subscription-only options also available for non-members including schools, universities and
libraries, as well as individuals. 

“I am so pleased about the redesign of the magazine and Maurice Riordan's editorship. The Poetry Review has gone through many incarnations in the time I've been a subscriber, but I've always been glad to have it.” – Helen Dunmore

“The contemporary poetry magazine of record.” – The Guardian
