Different Approaches to Women Poets
2018 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, which first gave women the right to vote.
Chris Salberg and Margaret Hamilton have put together this evening on the theme of women’s poetry.

Christmas Open Evening
Ho! Ho! Ho!  This is the time to bring some really highbrow poetry (like limericks) to add to the festive season.
Come and read your own poetry or something by any poet that you think will entertain the group – or just come and eat mince pies………
Tuesday 29th January 2019 – 7.30pm at the Helyar Arms
Guest Poets Evening
Two Bristol poets, Elizabeth Parker and Luke Palmer, are coming to East Coker.  Both poets are recently published;  Luke Palmer was the winner of this year’s Prole Pamphlet Competition for Spring in the Hospital.
Elizabeth Parker has had her debut collection In her Shambles published in 2018.
Some copies of our Competition Entries Booklet will be available at our next meeting (27th Nov) for those who would like one, and were not able to attend the competition evening last month.
