WHAT WE DO:  we started Poetrywivenhoe back in 2007 and, you know, before this awful pandemic we used to have live poetry readings every month at the Royal British Legion in Wivenhoe.   We now organise poetry events on Zoom, until such time as 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.



Take a look at the Books page …
you’ll find mention of Peter Ualrig Kennedy‘s debut collection Songs for a Daughter, and of Colin Pink‘s new collection Typicity.  Our collection of poems The Tales Told by Birds is available from the Wivenhoe Bookshop, direct sale or by mail order.  See:   info@wivenhoebooks.com

On the REVIEWS page you may find a link to Merryn Williams’ generous review of our own recent collection ‘The Tales Told by Birds’.  You’ll also see links on that page to other recent reviews of interesting poetry collections.

Also on the Comps and published page you can find reports of the various PUBLICATIONS and PRIZES achieved by supporters of Poetrywivenhoe. So please email (see Contact page) if you have news of your own prize or publication success – we depend on you for such information.
