Derbyshire Poem a Month

Derbyshire Poem a Month (opens in a new window) is a poetry blog hosted by Derbyshire Libraries, which has been running since 2009.

If you sign up for the blog you can

  • receive a poem in your inbox on the first day of each month
  • find out more about poetry events and competitions in Derbyshire
  • post your own thoughts about poetry
  • discover new poems and poets.

And perhaps it will encourage you to pick up a poetry book from one of our libraries.

If you enjoy writing your own poems, why not have a go at writing one and entering it for our Derbyshire Poem a Month Writing Competition? For full details pick up an entry form in any Derbyshire library or visit the Derbyshire Literature Festival website.

The competition is linked to the Derbyshire Literature Festival 8 to 17 May 2015 and Made in Derbyshire 2015 (opens in a new window).

If you enjoy poetry you might like to follow the Derbyshire Poet Laureate blog (opens in a new window) where Helen Mort, our current Derbyshire Poet Laureate writes about her many activities around the county.
