|Free Verse 2012|
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.
Also on offer are Poetry School workshops, free readings and the expertise of national organisations such as the Poetry Society, the Poetry Library, the Poetry Translation Centre and others.
Last year, benefiting from travel bursaries funded with Arts Council support, over half the participating publishers came from outside the London region: new contacts were made, new work was shared, ideas and knowledge were exchanged.
Table bookings are now open and we will start announcing information as we get it. To keep up with the latest news, you can sign up to our mailing list or follow us on Twitter or Facebook. If you are not a publisher but would still like to participate actively in the event, see the Volunteers page on this site.
