David Cloke, co-ordinator of the East Coker Poetry Group, writes:
Our meetings are held at the Helyar Arms, East Coker and normally start at 7.30pm on the last Tuesday of the month.
Sometimes we have to change a date or time of a meeting and our website will display any changes and the latest details.

Kate’s stage plays have been performed in the Salisbury Fringe Festival and at the Salisbury Playhouse Studio. Kate will be reading some of her work and also discussing poetic inspiration and finding your poetic voice
Tues 25th Oct Competition Evening
Come and read your entry – We hope to read all the entries
Everyone eats food. But can you write a recipe in poetic form? Following a vote at our May meeting, this is the challenge for our 2016 competition – A Recipe in Poetic Form
The recipe can be for any sort of food – a soup, a main course, a pudding, a cake, etc. The choice is yours – but there must be enough information in the poem so that in theory the recipe could actually be made. Entries by email if possible to :-firstname.lastname@example.org to reach me by the 1st October
We are also now accepting (for a second prize) poems based on the title but not actually an eatable recipe……….
Tues 29th Nov Annie Fisher
Annie Fisher won our 2012 poetry competition with three excellent poems on the theme of ‘Postcards’. She has gone on writing poetry and has new put together a collection that is being published in November. We are delighted to welcome her back to East Coker for a reading of her work
