Meet other members through Stanzas – poetry groups run voluntarily by Poetry Society members. Give feedback on each other’s ‘poems in progress’, set up a reading group, or run impromptu open mic sessions – whatever you want to do! You may even just want an excuse to have a poetic chat over a pint.
The main contact (Stanza rep) of the group has to be a Poetry Society Member and we prefer that Stanzas are open to everyone, Members and non-members alike. However, it may be that some groups decide to open up to Poetry Society Members only – for example, if there’s not much capacity in the room you use for meetings.
If you’re a Poetry Society Member and a member of a Stanza, you can enter our annual Stanza Competition.
