Poetry On Prescription
We're proud to be the world’s first walk-in Poetry Pharmacy prescribing poetry and other beautiful books with an emphasis on good mental health and well-being; plus our little cafe serving freshly ground coffee and cakes, a bibliotherapy space, a poetry reference library and regular workshops & retreats.
While we love to see you in the shop we also know there are times it's easier to shop online and have those books delivered to your door.
Browse the 'shelves' according to your mood- from ‘Matters of the Heart’ to ‘For days when the world is too much with us’ and find books chosen to address a particular emotional ailment. We also believe at the Poetry Pharmacy, that there is some poetry out there for everyone's taste and hopefully this page will help you find the right books!
If you know what you're looking for go straight to 'search' and you can order any book ( not just poetry) and you'll be supporting us and other independent bookshops.
Apologies that small presses may not be well represented here as we're limited to stock held by distributors.
If independent bookshops can carve off just 1% of book sales from Am@$⁰^, that means hundreds of thousands of pounds will stay in our communities! Thanks for shopping with us- you will be part of keeping indie bookshops alive and well and the UK High Street open in these difficult times. Thank you so much! --Deborah Alma, Owner & Poetry Pharmacist
