About Us

South Bank Poetry was founded in 2008 with the aim of making poetry accessible. It is something that we still continue to strive for through our master classes.

South Bank Poetry Magazine showcased the best new writing, submitted by novice and published poets from across the globe.

With our poetry competition, we seek to spark creativity and support new and rising talent by providing them with a platform to showcase their work.

South Bank Poetry is run by Katherine Lockton and Peter Ebsworth, read a little more about them below…
