Trowbridge Stanza

I organise a Poetry Society Stanza which meets every month (first Saturday of each month, 2-4pm) at Drawing Projects UK, Bridge House, Trowbridge.

Our next meeting is Saturday, December 1, 2018, 2 – 4pm when I am thrilled to say that Bloodaxe poet Abigail Parry, whose book Jinx was shortlisted for this year’s Forward Prize for Best First Collection will be our Guest Reader.  Tickets are only £3 payable on the door and there will also be the opportunity to hear poems from the floor, so do bring a poem or two for the open-mic.  Everyone welcome, whether or not you belong to our Stanza.
