Oxford University Poetry Society

We are the Oxford University Poetry Society and we are raising funds to help us promote up and coming poetry in Oxford, host great events which are mostly free, and encourage young poets with chances to win cash prizes in yearly poetry competitions!

The OUPS, founded in 1946, is one of the longest running student poetry societies in the country! Our committee is filled with talented and blooming poets who are passionate about showcasing student writing in Oxford, with our well-known publication 'The ASH'.
To do make sure we stay inclusive and accessible most of our events are free, as we would also like to encourage anyone who fancies it, to turn up! We organise open mics, poetry workshops and other great talks.

We would greatly appreciate any support possible, as this will help us to promote new and exciting poetry in Oxford, and discover the upcoming voices that populate this city!

Thank you for your help and your time :)
