This is the home of Lunar Poetry Podcasts, a series of discussions (now released quarterly), interviews and live recordings with poets in the UK and further afield, examining the writing process. Now based in Walthamstow, LPP was founded in October 2014 in South East London by David Turner, originally in partnership with Lunar Poetry Magazine but has continued independently since summer 2015.
In January 2018 we started a companion podcast a poem a week in which we bring you a poem every week read by the author themselves or series editor Lizzy Turner.
With the aid of a grant from Arts Council England in January 2017 we are now able to provide transcripts of all new episodes as well as working our way through our archive with a view to transcribing 80% of all content.
We have recently agreed a deal with The British Library which will result in the entire series being archived in their audio archive.
