Welcome

Welcome To Shortlands Poetry Circle.

Over 100 years of poetry appreciation. Members & visitors meet twice a month during term time to share poems on particular topics or by particular poets. Visitors are very welcome. Just turn up or contact us. Come and join us for the pleasure of poetry in a friendly atmosphere (bring 2 poems to read, but not your own, 1 must be short) and a long chat over tea and biscuits.

About Poetry

“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It’s that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that’s what the poet does.” — Allen Ginsberg, from Ginsberg, A Biography.

Using The Links To Find Events

Although a selection of poetry events is published on this blog, the link to The Poetry Library (on the right hand side of the page) offers much more. Besides News, Events and Competitions you can search the Poetry Library catalogue and see which magazines are stocked.
