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 us.

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