Poems to Live for: live webinars


We have launched a series of live webinars called Poems to live for.

There will be discussions on poetry. Invited poets around the world will read a poem that seems full of the spirit that's worth living for, and will say why this poem means so much to him/her. We shall also provide updates from the 2020 Hippocrates Prize  and other activities of the Hippocrates Initiative for Poetry and Medicine.

We also welcome suggestions for poems (out of copyright) you would like read. You may also email us with a reading of a favourite poem (must not your own AND must be out of copyright). We can’t  promise to use all readings or suggestions but we shall use as many as possible.

Please email your suggestions or links to a reading to hippocrates.poetry@gmail.com

You can join by computer/laptop/smartphone or by dialling in from a phone.
See below for how to join the sessions.

About our Poems to Live for session for commended poems in the 2020 Hippocrates Prize

"… I think one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, poetry readings I have ever attended. The shock of recognition of some powerful experiences took me by surprise (although it shouldn’t have done) but to hear such difficult issues voiced, tussled with in some cases, felt like an unburdening."
