Poetry Now! A Poetry Book Club

Contemporary poetry is very much alive with many innovative publications every year. Poetry Now! will introduce you to some of the 21st Century’s most exciting UK poets and the rise of the small publishers who promote them. Every month we will look at a recent poetry publication and discuss the merits and challenges of the expanding world of UK poetry. The chosen poets will include major prize winners, some familiar names and a few surprises.

Poetry Now! will be run by Dr Lucy English, Professor of Creative Enterprise at Bath Spa University and Co-director the Lyra Bristol Festival. The first session will be at The Gloucester Road Bookshop 6.30–7.30pm on Thursday 6th October and will run monthly. 

The maximum of 20 participants has been reached. If you are interested in being added to the wait list, please contact Lucy English on slamlucy@hotmail.com
