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 and organisations both large and small, both experimental and traditional, display and sell their work direct to the public.

Save the Date

This year’s Free Verse Poetry Book & Magazine Fair will take place on Saturday 22 September 2018 at Senate House in London.

Free Verse is managed by The Poetry Society. We look forward to building on the sturdy foundations of Free Verses past to bring publishers, poets and poetry-lovers together for a day of sales and celebration.

Plans are developing nicely at the moment - we have more than 60 publishers signed up, we've got workshops in place, and are making arrangements for a wide range of daytime readings presenting work from new and established presses. We'll post updates about about exhibitors and events as they expand.
