Link to the new war poetry website  - warpoetry.uk


And information about war poetry anthologies and biographies of war poets.

Why the new site?

For 20 years THE WAR POETRY WEBSITE was the leading war poetry website on the internet, usually number one in search results and with about a million visitors a year. Recently hackers interfered with the website and eventually destroyed it so now we have an improved, modern-looking mobile friendly website which should be easier to use. Some of the pages on the original website have still to be revised and added to the new site.

What do you think?

Let me know if you have any requests or find any problems with the new site.

Thank you for visiting.
