Welcome to Free Verse: The Poetry Book Fair!

Free Verse: The Poetry Book Fair will be next held on Saturday 26th September, 2015. Table bookings will open in March 2015. You can register your interest at poetrybookfair@gmail.com in the meantime.

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.


Free Verse 2014 was held on Saturday 6th September 2014 at Conway Hall in London, followed by an evening do at the nearby Rugby Tavern for a grand night of poetry and socialising.

Thanks to Arts Council England funding, we were able to create a free anthology and publisher guide to give away for free on the day. We will shortly be uploading a version of this to our website.
