The Essex Poetry And Prose Society

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.
