This is the home of Lunar Poetry Podcasts, a series of discussions, interviews and live recordings with poets in the UK and further afield, examining the writing process. Now based in Bristol, 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.
Part funded by a Grant For The Arts from Arts Council England since September 2016, LPP has been shortlisted for a Saboteur Award (Best Wildcard) as well as a British Podcast Award (Represent category).
We have recently agreed a deal with The British Library which will result in the entire series being archived in their audio archive. Subscribe to LPP or a poem a week via Soundcloud, iTunes, Stitcher or wherever you download your podcasts for automatic updates regarding fresh episodes.
With the aid of a second GFTA 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.
