Poets' Letter began existence
as a tiny little magazine, published in the late
nineties. Then it became an online monthly
publication, followed by a short monthly print
magazine existence, from it grew many things:
Poets' Letter Poetry Performance Series starting
out at The Poetry Cafe, Covent Garden in 2004,
which, then, spread across London, that ran for
a few years and out of it grew the London Poetry
Festival annually, starting in 2005.
Poets' Letter, eventually,
grew into The Poet's Letter Group of Magazines,
both print and online: The Poets' Letter
Magazine Print, The Poets' Letter Magazine
Online, The Poets' Letter Youth Lit, The Poets'
Letter Fiction and The Poets' Letter Pholosophia
in the zero decade, 2000s but all then gave into
a phase of 'non-existence' before becoming all
into The Humanion, where Poets' Letter was
reborn through the Renovatio on August 23: 2016.
Poets' Letter Renovatio August 23: 2016
Welcome. Here we are with Poets' Letter Renovatio: Poets'
Letter has had many successive reappearances. First it appeared in print in the
nineties as the computer and internet began spreading their prowess. Then from
2004 it appeared online and ran on for a few years. On August 23, 2006 Poets'
Letter made its first print magazine appearance at the II London Poetry Festival
and ran a few issues.
Along the way, Poets' Letter became Poets' Letter Online,
Poets' Letter Print, Poets' Letter Youth Lit, Poets' Letter Fiction, Poets'
Letter Philosophia and in this journey Poets' Letter developed its Poetre
Programme Poets' Letter Poetry Performance and Live Music Series that went on
for a few years at Covent Garden from where grew the London Poetry Festival and
at the Poetry Cafe we held our first London Poetry Festival in 2005.
Then after a break Poets' Letter ran both online and in
print, a while in 2009. From Poets' Letter two poetry Anthologies were published. One
was Poets' Letter Poetry Anthology of New Voices in 2005 and London Poetry
Pearl: Celebrating the 5th Festival, Publishing 64 Poets and the five Festival
Poets in Residence at the 5th Festival 2009.
