Meetings usually take the form of a presentation and discussion
of a poet or topic, followed, if time allows, by a brief
workshop session when members can read their own work.
Activities include joint meetings with other Poetry or Writers'
Groups, occasional public readings, and publication of the
annual "Southend Poetry" anthologies.
There is no formal membership - anyone is welcome to the
meetings - and the first time is free!
Some of us write poetry ourselves, some have published or
broadcast, some have performed at readings in various parts of
the country, and some come along simply to read and appreciate
the poetry under discussion.
Whatever your interest or talent, we'll be glad to see you with
information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Southend Poetry anthologies have been published in pamphlet form
each year since 1985.
Many of these poems can be read on this site
