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.

This year's Free Verse: Poetry Book Fair will take place on
Saturday 30th September 2017
at Conway Hall in London!
The fair itself is free to enter and is open to the public from 11am - 6pm,
with an Evening Do from 7pm onwards
