Trowbridge Stanza is going to meet again in person (the first in-person meeting since 2020!) on Saturday, 5 February at Drawing Projects UK, Trowbridge. This session will include an introduction to this year’s Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize and the opportunity to write poems in response to the drawings in the exhibition. More details in the Trowbridge Stanza newsletter about how to register for your free place.
Trowbridge Stanza is a friendly, inclusive group, a mixture of published and unpublished poets.
Trowbridge Stanza was set up by Josephine Corcoran in 2018. We’re a monthly poetry group, a Poetry Society Stanza, that meets every first Saturday (first Saturday of each month, 2-4pm) at Drawing Projects UK, Bridge House, Trowbridge. Poetry Society Stanzas are poetry groups run voluntarily by members of the Poetry Society. Although several of the group (including Josephine) belong to the Poetry Society, there is no obligation for anyone to join. Everyone is welcome.
Trowbridge Stanza is a friendly, inclusive group, a mixture of published and unpublished poets. We read and talk about contemporary poetry, read and comment on each other’s work in progress, organise open-mic events and guest readers, and we perform our work at different venues. If you would like more information about joining our group, please email me email@example.com. You can also sign up for a monthly newsletter https://tinyletter.com/JosephineCorcoran

SOME PAST EVENTS

On Saturday, December 1, we enjoyed a wonderful reading by Bloodaxe poet Abigail Parry, whose book Jinx was shortlisted for this year’s Forward Prize for Best First Collection. Abigail read from Jinx, and other work, and took part in a lively and fascinating Q & A about her writing life, answering questions about this year’s Forward Prize, commissions, her route to publication, her motivations for writing, and more. Audience members listened attentively to Abigail’s poems, asked brilliant questions and read fantastic poems at the open-mic. It was wonderful to receive many appreciative tweets and messages after the event!
