About the Collection

The Lincolnshire Poetry collection is a reference only resource available to university staff, students and the general public housed in the University Library.

In addition to the anthologies and individual poems written by poets living in and born in Lincolnshire, a programme of recordings has been started, to capture the poets reading their own material.
