Poetry Wales is creating a Magazine

$1
per month
Founded in 1965, Poetry Wales is published three times a year with an international reputation for excellent poems, features and reviews from Wales and beyond. Emerging from a rich bilingual culture, Poetry Wales explores the diverse perspectives of Welsh poetry in English and its international relationships.

Its interest in translation, and in local and national identities in a global context, are at the forefront of some of the most exciting developments in poetry today. The magazine is open to tradition and experiment, publishing poetry from a wide range of approaches. Against this background of dynamic contrast, it offers a lively and informed critical context for the best contemporary poetry.

We are looking at new ways to bring the magazine to a wider audience as well as providing our readers and supporters with something extra. We also need to explore avenues of funding. We pride ourselves in keeping the magazine as ad-free as possible so that the magazine is full to the brim with good quality content and this is where Patreon comes in!

We have many ambitions for the magazine but not enough funding with which to implement them. For example, we would like to upgrade our very old website so that we have the capacity to be more dynamic with our content. We have very limited space within the magazine for reviews and there is so much good poetry out there. We would love to publish a weekly review online and be able to pay our reviewers. We would also like to take the magazine on tour, create poetry events in Wales and beyond, attend festivals and create partnerships. It would also be great if we could afford to splash out on some advertising and afford some more staff time so we can produce even more content for our readers.  

Essentially, we need your assistance to bring these dreams to life! So that we can be a better magazine for you as an avid poetry reader.

Thank you for coming here to support us, we hope you will consider becoming part of this very special project.

With best wishes,

Rebecca and Nia

Goals
$1 of $750 per month
At the moment we have one important goal: in a digital age it is important that
we are as accessible and visible as possible so we want to build a much needed
sparkling new advert free website where we can regularly upload articles, weekly
reviews and info as well as create special promotions for our readers. This will also
include payment for reviewers and writers as we believe nobody should be working
for free.
