Monthly meeting (usually the first Wednesday of each month), open to all; a chance to discuss your poems in a supportive environment alongside a focus each month on a selected poet or collection.

The next Poetry Cafe will be on Wednesday, 5th August, from 12pm for a 12:20 start.

We’re reading The Navigators by Matthew Clegg. From 1pm, we’ll start the workshop. Bring half a dozen or so copies of your poem. We’ll aim to finish between 3pm and half past.

These are all of the books for July, August and September.
July 1st – Skin by Chris Jones
August 5th – The Navigators by Matthew Clegg
September 2nd – The Ripening by Shelley Roche-Jacques
The writers are are all locally-based and Longbarrow Press is a small press based in Sheffield.  I’m really keen to read all these books, and it would be good to support them.

Here’s the link to Shelley’s book:

And here is the Longbarrow website, where you can buy both books as of today:
