Poetry Can Membership Scheme
Poetry Can is the poetry organisation working to promote poetry in the South West of England. It is dedicated to supporting the creative and professional development of poets of all ages and levels of experience, and to increasing and promoting opportunities for everyone to take part in and enjoy poetry. Membership costs £3 per month (you might think of it as buying poetry a cup of coffee once a month!)
By becoming a member of Poetry Can you will be saying in a very practical way that you believe in the importance and possibilities of poetry.
Welcome to the Poetry Can website
This site is a portal to the world of poetry in the South West of England.
You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter at: www.poetrycan.co.uk/contact.
Poetry Can organises both Bristol Spring Poetry Festival and Bristol Poetry Festival every year. These festivals feature local national and international poets. We've put together a page featuring all of the poets who have appeared at Bristol Poetry Festivals over the past few years, we call it The Wall of Poetry Fame.
Quotes featured at the top of the page come from: The Bloodaxe Book of Poetry Quotations
