Please note: The reference library is currently in storage while we go through a period of development here at the Poetry Pharmacy. We hope to make it accessible again by the end of the year, and appreciate your patience in the meantime.

The Poetry Pharmacy is very proud of its extensive and comprehensive poetry reference library.

Many of the books have been generously donated by the poets themselves and at least half of the books are a great gift from the library of the poet David Scott, generously donated by his wife Miggy Scott. As well as collections, we have many anthologies, children’s poetry books and books on the theory and practice of writing poetry.

The library is available for reference, free of charge and by appointment at hello@poetrypharmacy.co.uk. It’s a pleasant and airy room to work in and coffee, tea and cakes can be bought in our Dispensary Cafe and taken upstairs. There is access to a wi-fi printer and scanner. This library/workshop space can also be hired for groups and events.

Contact hello@poetrypharmacy.co.uk for prices. Refreshments and lunches available.
