Our mission

The Bristol Poetry Institute, a part of the University of Bristol, is an organisation committed to the advancement of poetry.

It exists to facilitate and to advocate for the study, research, practice and reading of poetry, and to promote poetry to the widest possible University, local and regional audience.

The Bristol Poetry Institute works as a poetry hub and a focal point for poetry within the University and the City of Bristol. To this end, the Bristol Poetry Institute encourages collaboration and engagement between University departments, local schools, the public, community partners and local organisations.
