About Us


We encourage you, wherever you may be, to support our project to publish new poems that will counteract the Covid blues; this endeavour has by now achieved well over 300 consecutive days of your poems.

We ask you to keep on sending in your uplifting or challenging poems for our daily ANTI-COVID-19 NEW POEMS INITIATIVE. … please continue to submit (sadly not all make the cut, but then that’s the way of it).

Today’s illusive poet is Gordon Hoyles.

See the Poems Today page for submission guidelines

Poems do not have to follow a Covid-19 theme.

Take a look at the Publications page …
Our new collection of poems from the first 50 days of our lockdown project, The Tales Told by Birds, is now available by phone or email from the Wivenhoe Bookshop. The Bookshop offers mail order, so it is easy for you to obtain your copy (retailing at £8.00) from 01206 824050 or from info@wivenhoebooks.com

Also on this page you can find reports of the various PUBLICATIONS and PRIZES achieved by supporters of Poetrywivenhoe. So please email (Contact page) if you have news of your own prize or publication success – we depend on you for such information.
