Previously 'Salisbury House Poets', the group has been meeting since 2000. It was founded by Anthony Fisher, Jane Elder and Valerie Darville. The group has a genuine interest in both reading and listening to poetry – half of the evening is devoted to “poets from the floor” and the other half to a guest poet. New members are always welcome.
The original venue was Salisbury House, a Grade II listed Jacobean house in Bury Street West, Edmonton, with an unproven link to the “hanging judge” Judge Jeffreys. In 2012/13, a shift was made to The Dugdale Theatre in Enfield, though there are occasional events at other locations (see venue and dates at the poetry p f eventslisting site)
The group receives no public funding and is reliant on its events for funding, so please, please, do come along to enjoy and join in the readings and enter future competitions if you can.
Open mic and guests poets for an evening of poetry and sometimes music. Good PA and mics. Meet first Saturday of the Month except January, July and August at the Dugdale centre in Enfield near Enfield Town station.W8 and 329 buses stop out side.
Please let us know if you want to be added to our mailing list.
Salisbury Poets ran their first poetry competition in 2006, with a first prize of £500, which was judged by Mario Petrucci and attracted almost 800 entries.
The deadline for the 2014 Enfield Poets International Poetry Competition is 1st December 2014. The Judge is Ruth Padel. More here: http://enfieldpoets.com/competition/
