Welcome to Free Verse: The Poetry Book Fair!

Free Verse: The Poetry Book Fair will be next held on Saturday 26th September, 2015. Table registration is now closed - here is the list of all 86 exhibitors who will be attending this year's fair!

Free Verse is an all-day bazaar, market, library, meeting place, performance venue, information resource and more. Celebrating the vitality of contemporary poetry in the UK, publishers both large and small, both experimental and traditional, display and sell their work direct to the public.

We have also launched the first Poetry Book Fair competition this year - find out all about it, and how to enter, by clicking here!
