The Poetry Business Library Partnerships
The Poetry Business regularly works with libraries to provide writing workshops and poetry readings.
For four years, Ann Sansom led a weekly writers' workshop in the Huddersfield City Library as a part of Kirklees Community Writing Programme, as well as workshops in Derbyshire libraries in collaboration with The Poetry Society.
In 2011, The Poetry Business organised a programme of readings in libraries across the country. As part of the organisation's 25th anniversary, the 'Big Poetry Day' saw a variety of Smith/Doorstop poets performing in their local library.
Libraries are entitled to a 40% discount on purchases of Smith/Doorstop titles and The North magazine.
Our list includes children's poetry and textbooks, as well as a wide range of prize-winning contemporary poetry. Current subscribers to The North include libraries across the UK and USA
