The Verb Poetry Book Club

As part of the BBC’s 2016 ‘Get Reading’ campaign The Verb is launching its Poetry Book Club and we’re looking for reading groups to join us. Are you in a reading group or book club with an interest in contemporary poetry? We will be asking groups to read a collection of poetry, and give them a chance to come along to a recording and put their questions to the author. If you’d like to get involved please email:
