About Us

WEBSITE UPDATED 27 NOVEMBER 2020

The website is under reconstruction.  The old Poetry page is gone, and the daily Anti-Covid-19 new poems are being posted on the Poems Today page

****

Our new collection of poems from the first 50 days of our lockdown project, The Tales Told by Birds, is now available by phone or email from the Wivenhoe Bookshop. The Bookshop remains open for web / telephone / email orders, offering local delivery and mail order. So it is easy for you to obtain your copy (retailing at £8.00) from 01206 824050 or info@wivenhoebooks.com

And Adrian May has a new CD album of poems with music, entitled Folk Poetry: In The Restrictions, available via his website adrianmay.org.uk  It includes some of his poems from the Poetrywivenhoe Anti-Covid project and book.
