The poet of the day is Jenna Plewes.

WHAT WE DO:  we started Poetrywivenhoe back in 2007 and we used to have live poetry readings every month at the Royal British Legion in Wivenhoe.   When the pandemic upended everyone’s lives we switched to poetry events on Zoom, looking forward to the time we can get back to our live readings and workshops – see both the EVENTS page and the POEMS page.

We keep you informed of developments on our EVENTS page.
NB email me (see CONTACTS page) if you’d like to be on our list for emailed Poetrywivenhoe updates. Peter

This WEBSITE is open for business, so come back to us each day for the ANTI-COVID-19 NEW POEMS feature.
