The Poetry Business: Digital Residencies

The Poetry Business: Digital Residencies


Based in Sheffield The Poetry Business is a publisher and writer development agency with a strong reputation for discovering, developing and publishing outstanding new poets. They publish books and pamphlets as Smith | Doorstop, publish The North magazine and hold writing days and workshops. We’ve been partners since the Squad started and throughout 2021 we are working together on a series of digital residencies.

Each month, a Squad poet will take up residence on The Poetry Business website, producing blog poets, audio clips, writing prompts and more. It’s up to them to decide what shape the content of their residency takes, and we’re looking forward to seeing what they produce!

The first Poet In Residence, hosted throughout February, was Helen Bowell.
