London Poetry Meetup

If any of you would-be poet-types are wafting and drooping about London, let me recommend the London Poetry Meetup. We met in the Artillery Arms on Monday to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday and it was quite the food of love.

In advance of each meeting, a great poet (or a handful of 'em) is chosen, and you bring along some of their work to read and some of your own. Along the way, some beer is drunk and some merry tangents are gone on.

The next one is going to feature Browning, Tennyson, Eliot and Pound - who would miss it for the world?

If you're interested, you need to register with the Meetup website:

Then join the London Poetry Meetup Group.
