Monthly Meetings

Our monthly readings by well-known poets normally take place at a venue in Tunbridge Wells, but because of COVID-19 they are on-line for the time being. They are free for members, but non-members who would like to attend can pay £3 using the PayPal button on the right, and email us at kentandsussexpoetry@gmail.com to request a Zoom link for the event in question. There is also often an opportunity to read a short poem (up to 40 lines) at Open Mic. Readings are normally on the third Tuesday of each month (except August) – details of each meeting are uploaded on the front page of this website in advance. The poets booked for 2021 are listed below.

Visitors welcome. Admission to non-members: £3                       

enquiries, e-mail: kentandsussexpoetry@gmail.com (but please note, this email is not checked daily). 

We also hold informal writers’ ‘Workshop’ meetings (for Society members only) on the first Tuesday of each month (except August) – also on Zoom for now. Further details from Eileen at lobbed@btinternet.com
