Southend Poetry Group
meets at 8.00pm on the first Wednesday
of each month at the Naval and Military Club,
20 Royal Terrace, Southend-on-Sea, Essex. SS1 1DU map
(note this is a members club, so you will need to ring the bell to be let in)
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
Whatever your interest or talent, we'll be glad to see you with
