“The Poetry Book Society subscription is a wonder in keeping our collections up-to-date and contemporary”
– Fiona, Wolfson College Library, Oxford University

"PBS membership allows both students and teachers alike an ongoing dialogue with the best of contemporary poetry via the PBS quarterly recommendations. We have followed PBS for many years and regularly invite poets via their recommendations into our school for readings and workshops. They find these inspiring: simultaneously broadening and deepening."


- Peter Carpenter, Tonbridge School

 "The Poetry Book Society offers a rich selection of contemporary poetry in print that otherwise many of our students may not come across. In recent years the book choice has provided inspiration for students wanting to explore new work, find something to read out loud at poetry readings and events, or to use for coursework. It is crucial that young people are afforded the opportunity to explore new and established voices in poetry and the PBS acts as a knowledgeable and experienced guiding hand, enthusiastically pressing recommendations into our hands like a bookish friend. Our poetry section in the library is enriched and enlivened by the quarterly choices."

- Gareth Ellis, Whitley Bay High School
