About The Poetry School

Poetry School is a national arts organisation providing inspiring tuition and opportunities for poets and poetry audiences. The School was founded in 1997 by poets Mimi Khalvati, Jane Duran and Pascale Petit. Since their earliest days, their courses and activities have encouraged poets and poetry to flourish.

With established teaching centres throughout England including one in Rotherhithe as well as online courses, downloadable activities, and the world’s biggest social network dedicated to poetry – CAMPUS – they are unique in our ability to reach and develop aspiring poets wherever they may be, both in the UK and internationally.


CAMPUS is a community-driven online platform bringing together poets from all over the globe. It’s free to join and open to poets of all levels, from beginners to pros, from all backgrounds.

Gain unique access to a growing community of hundreds of poets, and take part in a high quality selection of open workshops and online courses, all created to teach skills, prompt new writing and foster continuing artistic development for everyone.
