The School of Night – inspired by the group which included Christopher Marlowe and Sir Walter Raleigh – is our Year Round Poetry Festival. Playing host to poets as varied as Paul Muldoon and Lorraine Mariner, and anchored in a regular fixture on the first Tuesday of every month, The School of Night offers the chance to explore and discuss the work of some of the best poets on the contemporary scene.
We’re changing things up this September with a salon-style evening chaired by local poets Peter Jarvis and Lindsay Macgregor! Join us around the fire to share and discover all sorts of poems and poets -Read a favourite published poem aloud or just come along to listen to a diverse collection and discuss current trends and highlights. No previous experience of poetry or public speaking required!
If you would like to contribute a poem to read, do send one in to Mairi on the bookshop email email@example.com so we can have print-outs available on the night – all poems must be published, and authored by someone other than the reader!
