Welcome to Poetry Feed HE. Do you work in Higher Education and feel the need for sustenance that cannot come from bread alone? Do you crave a creative escape from endless meetings and markings? Do you sometimes forget why you got into all of this in the first place?

Then let us feed you poetry.

We are a group of academics who use poetry to support learning, teaching, and research in higher education. We are also poetry lovers who are excited by the idea of feeding you poems and receiving your suggestions for poems in return.  Check the About Us page for further information.

We’ll be trawling the Internet to find interesting and thought-provoking poetry, and then sharing it with you via this blog on a weekly basis (to begin with). We hope that it quenches your thirst and sates your hunger, that it inspires you to consider other creative approaches to teaching and learning, and that it introduces you to some new poetry or reminds you of some lost loves. We welcome your responses to these poems, either in the comments section of each post or via our Contact page.

As well as feeding you poetry, we have a lot of ideas about how to further use this blog, including monthly competitions and maybe webinars to discuss in more detail some of the poems that we’ve posted. Let us know what would work best for you by leaving a comment in the box below.
