Thank you for visiting the Poetry By Heart website and for taking an interest in finding out the various ways in which you can support us.
Participate In The Competition
The first step is to participate in Poetry By Heart, our annual national competition that brings poetry recitation both into the classroom and onto the national stage at our Winner’s Weekends each year.
With schools, colleges, teachers and students participating each year, we’ve been able to demonstrate the joy of learning poetry by heart and the wonderful benefits gained by participating – from students gaining confidence to schools discovering a wonderful platform to promote poetry recitation in the classroom, this is the most interactive way to help support our cause.
Share Your Experiences
We invite all teachers, students and organisers to share their stories with us and tell us all about how you learnt your poems by heart, perfected your performances, and how Poetry By Heart affected your perception of poetry recitation.
Your experiences matter, and are the tangible fruits of the Poetry By Heart initiative. We may feature your comments in blog posts and materials we use in future competitions, and it could be the one story that captures someone’s imagination and introduces Poetry By Heart to someone new.
Send your stories by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer with PBH
If you would like to help the PBH team by volunteering your spare time, simply get in touch with us by email on email@example.com.
Coming Soon: Donate
If you would like to invest in Poetry By Heart, we welcome donations.
Every penny would go toward creating wonderful downloadable teaching materials and videos to help teachers and students alike engage with poetry and poetry recitation.
We are currently in the process of creating an easy to use donation page, however if you would like to express your interest in this, please email Julie Blake, Co-Director and Founder of Poetry By Heart, firstname.lastname@example.org.
