Research Networks

International Poetry Studies

International Poetry Studies (IPSI) conducts research related to poetry and publishes and promulgates the outcomes of this research internationally.

IPSI publish poetry and interviews with poets, as well as related material, from around the world. Publication of such material takes place in the online journal Axon: Creative Explorations, and through other vehicles, such as special journal issues and IPSI's chapbook series.

Goals include working—collaboratively, where possible—to further the appreciation and understanding of poetry, poetic language and the cultural and social significance of poetry. IPSI organises the annual Poetry on the Move Festival, research symposia, seminars, readings and other poetry-related activities and events.

The IPSI aims to develop new communities of poetry and to make new links between poets wherever they are. It aims to celebrate the complexity and variety of poetry and, while doing so, to bring poetry to the attention of as wide an audience as possible.
