The Poetry Business is a poetry publisher and writer development agency.
We publish books, pamphlets, audio and eBooks under the smith|doorstop imprint; edit a literary magazine, The North; and run Writing Days, masterclasses, residential courses, and a Writing School for published poets. We also run the annual Book & Pamphlet Competition.
Our poets have won or been shortlisted for almost every major poetry prize, including the Forward Prize on 11 occasions and 10 Poetry Book Society awards, and smith|doorstop Books was awarded the 2012 Michael Marks Award. Andrew Motion described The Poetry Business as "one of the most vital and vitalising literary organisations in the country".
