The Stoke Stanza at The Leopard, Burslem, is one of many Poetry Society Stanzas around the country. You don’t have to be a member of The Poetry Society to attend or get involved.
Here are some links to Poetry Society web pages and events, as well as other local, regional and national sites you may find helpful.
We have good contacts with writers’ groups across our region and beyond. If you would like us to provide a link to your group or activity or to collaborate with us in some way, please get in touch.
