Poetrywivenhoe has been bringing high quality poetry events to Wivenhoe for almost ten years now. We invite a wide range of nationally known poets to read, as well as local poets.  There are a lot of established writers who are keen to come and perform in Wivenhoe, but we also support local writers with a space to try out their work.  We have an "Out of the Hat" open mic slot for new talent.

In 2008 we held the inaugural Wivenhoe Poetry Prize Competition, and published, in association with the Wivenhoe Bookshop, a collection of new poetry: "poetrywivenhoe 2008. Our second collection was poetrywivenhoe 2011. Other publications have followed, including "KJV: Old Text New Poetry, So too have the doves gone, Days begin All are available at the Wivenhoe Bookshop or by email: wiven.book@zetnet.co.uk

Poetrywivenhoe is a regular feature in the annual Essex Poetry Festival.

Poetrywivenhoe's standup poetry evenings are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Royal British Legion, The Quay, Wivenhoe.  There is an interval bar.
