Poetry Landmarks

Scottish Poetry Library


(Poetry Organisation)


The Scottish Poetry Library is the place for poetry in Scotland, for the regular reader, the serious student or the casual browser. Since its foundation in 1984 it has amassed a remarkable collection of written works, as well as tapes and videos. It holds regular poetry events, details available on the library website.

The emphasis is on contemporary poetry written in Scotland, in Scots, Gaelic and English, but historic Scottish poetry - and contemporary works from almost every part of the world - feature too. We also have collections for the visually impaired.

All our resources, advice and information are readily accessible, free of charge.
