WHITHER POETRYWIVENHOE?
The future

Turn to the Events page and you’ll see that we have a programme in place, inviting visiting poets to Poetrywivenhoe, up until July when we envisage planned readings by small numbers of local poets, with printed handouts, and group discussion. If this proves to be a success, that will become the pattern for events from September onwards. We’ll continue to have an Open Mic slot – our popular ‘Out of the Hat’. Let’s see how it goes – I’m not dismissing the possibility of still hosting the occasional visitor.

We hope you will support this new initiative.
