How To Get Involved

For Poets: I am maintaining a database of poets who would like to be interviewed in future iterations (to be developed). The aim of the site is to include a balance of established and emerging voices from across the UK and Ireland.

Interviewers will need to be able to research your work, so please only contact me if you have a book, pamphlet, or CD in print and an online presence. Send your name, email address and website details to sophie [at] sophiemayer [dot] net to be added to the database, and for updates.

I’m receiving many requests and cannot respond to them all! When future rounds of interviews (see below) are set up, I will be in touch with the poets to be interviewed.

For Interviewers: I am interested in creating future iterations with writing groups, and classes at universities and secondary schools. If you are a teacher, student, facilitator or group participant and would like to get involved with doing some interviews, contact me on sophie [at] sophiemayer [dot] net to discuss the process.

The interviews have a basic format: the information is available here.

    Great website – simple, but excellent idea. I run a not-for-profit literature website, peripeteia.webs.com for A level and undergraduate students, teachers, academics and writers and would like to add a link to your website. Would that be okay? If any of your poets or critics would like to contribute to the peripeteia project in any way do get in touch!

      Hi Neil: Peripeteia looks great (great word too). Please do link, I know both the poets and interviewers would love to feel their contributions were circulating and educating. And poets/critics, get in touch with Neil Bowen if you’re feeling peripatetic!
