Poetry Recommendations 2018

Once again we have teamed up with poetry publishers to create three lists of recommendations, great poetry to read on National Poetry Day or on any day of the year.

There are 12 books for reading groups, 12 for anyone who wants to explore what’s new in poetry these days, and 12 to share with children.

View full lists of recommendations by clicking on the images below.

You can buy any of the featured books and support your local independent bookshop at the same time using this buy button.


We hope you’ll find lots to appeal, whatever your tastes.  And keep an eye on the NPD blog too for interviews, features and the chance to win sets of these exciting books.
