Poetry By Heart is a national competition designed to encourage pupils aged 14-18 and at school and college in England to learn and to recite poems by heart. Intergral to Poetry By Heart is an ongoing programme of research and professional development, and we are collaborating with this work in the schools strand of our investigation.


We will be launching our survey in association with National Poetry Day.


The Poetry and Memory Project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
