Poetry Happening Near You


Our libraries

We have 11 libraries in Herefordshire:


Leominster Library hosts a regular poetry appreciation group on the third Thursday of the month 5.30 pm- 7.00 pm.

The group is free and anyone can join. Bring your choice of poems to read or for someone else to read, or just come to listen and relax.


Poetry on Loan representative

Anne-Marie Dossett  amdossett@herefordshire.gov.uk

I am a trustee of Ledbury Poetry Festival and I was a judge in the Poetry by Heart regional final in Herefordshire in 2016. 

I am a beekeeper and an environmental activist and tree lover so I especially like poetry about bees and trees.

Poets I like include Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry, Ian McMillan, Adam Horovitz, Billy Collins, Elizabeth Jennings and Matt Harvey.
