The Poetry Can exists thanks to the involvement, support, enthusiasm and generosity of public bodies, charitable trusts and private individuals.
The Poetry Can is a registered charity. We aim to increase opportunities for everyone to participate in and enjoy poetry and to support the
creative and professional development of poets of all ages and levels of experience.
We present and support a range of high profile events each year, including the Bristol Poetry Festivals; we initiate work in which poetry's role
in lifelong learning is explored and extended; we provide advice, information and support to individual poets and poetry enthusiasts, groups,
agencies and organisations through our website, monthly e-bulletin, individual poetry surgeries, and by responding to face-to-face, telephone
and e-mail enquiries enquiries.
