poetry events
Poet in the City organises and hosts up to 40 events each year featuring both internationally known and up-and-coming poets. Our events are designed to be accessible to those who are new to poetry while offering lovers plenty of substance and depth. Locations vary but include both evocative venues and places that are not generally open to the public.
