Poetry For All

In addition to his own poems, Felix was an untiring champion of new poets. We at the Felix Dennis Foundation are committed to continuing this legacy, by discovering and endowing the best new poetic voices.

We already sponsor the Felix Dennis Prize For Best First Collection at the prestigious annual Forward Prizes for Poetry as well as Felix Dennis Young Poets Prize at the Stratford Literary Festival and are currently planning numerous projects with grassroots organisations to help give a voice to those on the fringes of society.

“Time is the only thing we cannot replace, apart from our health and our lives. I resent wasting a moment of it.”

“I thoroughly object to getting old. If you could let me be 16 again, I'd give you everything I've got and everything I'll ever have.”
- felix dennis
"I have one talent, and that's figuring out what people want about two minutes before they know it themselves."
- felix dennis
"Once begun, the job's half-done. Because that first irrevocable step has proved to be the most difficult part of nearly every venture I've been involved in.”

“Being rich is fine, and at the very least is better than being poor. But it shouldn’t be the be-all and end-all of your life, or anyone’s life.”
