The Poetry Book Society’s quarterly Bulletin magazine is the place to discover the very best new poetry from across the globe. Founded by T.S. Eliot in 1953 to share the joy of poetry, the PBS Bulletin is packed full of poems from established and emerging poets alongside unique insights into their poetic practice, extensive reviews and comprehensive listings of all the latest poetry releases.

Each edition features a diverse range of issue-driven and innovative, world-class poetry, hand-picked by our expert poet-selectors: Jo Clement, Roy McFarlane, Nina Mingya Powles and Arji Manuelpillai. Past contributors include familiar names such Jorie Graham, Hannah Lowe, Ilya Kaminsky and Raymond Antrobus and emerging poetic talents such as Safiya Kamaria Kinshasa. Described by PBS Member Sarah H. as “a thing of beauty”, the PBS Bulletin is an inspirational guide to contemporary poetry.
Digital subscribers will have unique access to the PBS archive dating back to 2017, as well as each new issue hot off the press. The Poetry Book Society also offers a wide range of membership options for those wishing to receive print issues of Bulletin alongside copies of the featured poetry books and access to the digital archive.
