Everything on this website is free. If you could help us with a small donation to cover costs and keep the site going, that would be great!

The initial idea behind this website was to concentrate on poetry, however we have included a small prose section. We hope to expand this section in the future if people find it interesting. Poets have written some of the pieces included here and it is interesting to hear them speak in their ‘prose’ voice. On the whole prose is much easier to understand when read out loud than poetry. These playlists are just for listening to and the prose text is not provided.
