Help us elevate the next generation of Australian Poets.

Red Room Poetry is celebrating 20 Years of commissioning and creating new Australian poetry in meaningful ways. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help us to publish over 5,000 new Australian poems in 2023. We’ll make them available to all through our free digital library.

  • $100 supports the online publication of a student poem
  • $500 helps us to commission and publish a new Australian poem for our free digital library
  • $1,500 delivers a free workshop for school kids or the public

Whether it is providing a platform for marginalised voices to shine their light and have their story told, or helping tens of thousands of students achieve climate action through POEM FOREST, poetry is a vehicle for expression, for change, for participation.

And we can’t do any of this without you.
