About Us


poetrywivenhoe was established in 2007. We have monthly readings by established poets, and we attract highly accomplished contributions at the popular ‘Out of the Hat’ Open Mic session .

poetrywivenhoe is an open event, you don’t need club membership, just pay at the door (venue: Royal British Legion, The Quay, Wivenhoe).
poetrywivenhoe is a regular feature in the Essex Poetry Festival (see link).
