The Poetry Business Bookshop Partnerships
The Poetry Business provides discounts and favourable payment terms to booksellers, and also regularly works with shops to put on poetry readings and organise in-store writing workshops.
Workshops & readings
One previous Poetry Business partnership event was a launch of a new issue of The North at the Leeds branch of Borders in 2008. This event comprised two writing Poetry Business writing workshops in-store during the day, followed by a poetry reading in the evening.
Smith/Doorstop book launches are frequently held in bookshops, and we're always keen to forge new relationships with shops for this reason.
All Smith/Doorstop titles and issues of The North are available at a reduced rate of 40% off the cover price. Further discounts can also be negotiated for large orders. Sale-or-return terms are available.
All our books and The North are repped by Inpress and distributed by Central Books, and can be ordered direct from them.
To book one of our poets for a reading, email Allison, our marketing manager, at mac [at] poetrybusiness.co.uk.
