Moor Poets is a community of poets based in and around the Dartmoor area. We aim to help poets of all levels of experience with the development of their work and to share our enthusiasm for poetry as widely as possible.
On this website you can find details of Moor Poets’ own events and publications. You can also find information about other poetry events, as well as books and poems by our members. You can find us on Facebook too.
At the moment we have no more workshops scheduled for this year. Our workshop programme will start again in the early spring. In the meantime, if you are a member of Moor Poets or interested in becoming one you are welcome to attend our AGM on Saturday 26th January 2019.
We are continuing the series of events featuring our new anthology with a reading at Green Hill Arts gallery in Moretonhampstead at 2.00 pm on Saturday September 29th. The reading will coincide with an exhibition of paintings by Anita Reynolds, one of which we've used for the anthology cover.
Some contributors will be reading from the anthology at the Little Theatre, Torquay on Friday 5th October at 2.00 pm.
Contributors will also be reading at an evening of poetry and music at the St Annes Arts Centre in Barnstaple on Saturday 13th October at 7.30 pm.
