Poet's Place

REP Mezzanine (above the Marmalade Cafe). Poets' Place is an informal gathering of poets that meets twice a month. The Poets’ Place is an opportunity for local poets to meet like‐minded people, where they can give and solicit feedback on poetry, or just sit back and write for a couple of hours without interruption. Poets’ Place can be used to make new friends, discover new poets, find out about poetry events, share and have your work critiqued, make useful connections and set a writing schedule. They meet fortnightly on Saturdays, 3pm to 5pm, check out the Facebook Page for more information.
