The Kent & Sussex Poetry Society is a lively local group with a national reputation.
We’ve been going for over 70 years in Tunbridge Wells but remain as friendly and supportive and open to newcomers as ever.
Our activities include:
- Monthly open poetry readings from a wide range of contemporary poets. These evenings also include a short ‘open mic’ slot for readings from the floor.
- Monthly poetry workshops for writers looking for feedback on their poems.
- Our mega annual open poetry competition, with major cash prizes.
- An annual Folio competition, judged by well-recognised poets, for members only.
