  1. Hmm. Will most likely come along to these. Is there any way to arrange book launches in conjunction with you guys at any point? We’re based in Nottingham, and would very much like to get involved in the local poetry scene to help grow our profile.


  2. I am a Nigerian-based poet, who recently relocated to Nottingham for my Msc at Univ of Nottingham. I would like to attend your monthly events and would be glad to meet and share some of my poems as well…
