A Mouthful of Air poetry podcast with Mark McGuinness

Your support is vital to our success

Here at A Mouthful of Air we are on a mission to connect poets and poems with listeners and readers. And we can only succeed with your help…

Support the podcast

A Mouthful of Air is produced by Mark and Mami McGuinness, via our two-person business The 21st Century Creative.

The first two years of the podcast were supported by Arts Council England, via a National Lottery Project Grant.

Now, A Mouthful of Air is supported by our listeners.

If you enjoy the show and would like to support our mission of connecting poets with listeners and readers, you can do this in two ways:

1. Contribute to our production costs, via our Ko-Fi page. You can make a one-off or monthly donation.

2. Buy books from A Mouthful of Air Poetry Podcast Bookshop. The bookshop exclusively stocks books by poets who have been featured on the podcast. 10% of every book sale goes towards our production costs, and a further 10% supports independent bookshops.

Thank you for your support!

Support the poets

If you enjoy a poem you hear on this podcast, you can support the poet – and enrich your reading life – by buying their latest book.

Each time we feature a guest poet on the show, we provide links for you to buy the book in which the poem is published.

You can also support the poets by visiting their websites, subscribing to their mailing lists, following them on social media, and/or telling your friends about their poetry. You’ll find all the relevant links in the show notes for each episode, archived here.

Support the publishers

If you enjoy a poet’s work, the chances are their publisher has other poets you will like. So in the show notes for each episode we also link to their publisher’s website. 

You can widen your appreciation of contemporary poetry by checking out their roster of poets, subscribing to their mailing lists, and of course buying their books.
