War Poets Association
This page was last updated on 6th December 2013
The War Poets Association promotes interest in the work, life and historical context of poets whose subject is the experience of war. It is interested in war poets of all periods and nationalities, with a primary focus on conflicts since 1914 - mainly the First World War, Spanish War 1936-39, Second World War and Ireland. There are already many societies dedicated to individual war poets; one of the WPA's aims is to work with these and others to help promote joint activities and events of mutual interest.
