The Essex Poetry and Prose Society was founded in spring 1959.
We meet at 3pm in Stebbing, Essex, usually on the last Sunday in each month. Membership costs £10 per year.
For the third year we have adopted a "Poetry Café" format for most meetings.
Turn up, and bring a poem or two to read—well known, obscure, or even your own!
There may be a theme to each meeting, decided the month before, but keeping to the theme is optional.
