The British Poetry Society

The Poetry Society was founded in London, England in 1909. Then called the Poetry Recital Society, Lady Margaret Sackville was its first president. The group changed it’s name to what it is today three years later. Their flagship publication, Poetry Review, is the most respected poetry journal in Britain. It publishes the works of some of Britain’s most unique seasoned and emerging voices. Membership of The Society is open to anyone. Their website states that their mission is “to promote the study, use and enjoyment of poetry”.

The Society hosts several poetry competitions every year, the biggest of which is
the British National Poetry Competition. Other contests include the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award, The Geoffrey Dearmer Award, and The Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry. For a short period, they organised the Alice Hunt Bartlett Prize competition.

The National Poetry Competition has been conducted in Britain every year since 1978. Contrary to what its name implies, the contest is open to foreigners and usually receives around 10,000 entries. The competition opens in the spring and closes in the fall, and its panel of judges changes every year and are composed of well established poets. The top three entries are published in Poetry Review, and writer of the best poem receives £5,000.

Winners have included Carol Ann Duffy, who was appointed British Poet Laureate in 2009. Her poem ‘Whoever She Was’ topped the competition in 1983. 2008 winner Christopher James summarised the relevance of the The National Poetry Competition when he said, “If there is an unspoken Grand Slam circuit for poetry prizes, then the National Poetry Competition is definitely Wimbledon – it’s the one everyone dreams of winning”. Previous winners also include Jo Shapcott, Ruth Padel, Sinéad Morrissey and Helen Dunmore.

Beasts of the Forest, God Up Above

Using an ancient language of correspondences, we can touch upon Angels and guardianship, planets and their positions, understanding a  truth ancient by deciphering ourselves, we understand that creation is set by eternal principles that hold our hopes as we are encouraged by  a supreme guardianship  to progress in our journey.

Through sacred words  which unravel, a secret code which describes everlasting truths that vary in  time  influence and frequency , we can envision   a spectrum of ideals  that we must reach for. Striving  for a perfect existence fill our mind and hearts. We progress in our spiritual development in that moment in time  in which we are aware of the spiritual light that guides us and understand it denotes an eternal life existing within each one of us. These constructs that are established by sacred truths, are representing an infinite range of possibilities creation is supported by pillars which are also aspects of the possibilities of existence, angels remain as guardians protecting the heavens and the earth. Realizing our own abilities is  allowing us to connect to the planets and stars  and be touched by angels and chariots that carry our hopes and guard us. Each containing aspects of perfect states guiding,  guarding suspending and holding  as enduring constructs of faith.


Our last pull our last push our last thrust into entering a new age of our own development, is now. Leaping beyond our own realm of existence through thoughtful meditation allows us to feel new vibrations which can compensate our losses. Filling up, with new energy as new hopes allow us to make brave decisions critical steps transformed as love permeates our hearts and minds. Transforming self is a critical step in which we acknowledge the vital responsibility we must take in our own development. As real lasting change is directly dependent on our own understanding, of our needs in relation to the world, as meditations allows us to connect to our God our guardians and our angels and be in touch with our inner world.
