Poets and poetry lovers from other cities who are visiting London are warmly invited to join Poets of London at Waterstone's Gower Street and to participate in our workshops and in our projects and events.

Poets of London also particularly welcome poetic eyes from other cities. We warmly invite you to email us using the Poets of London alphabetical list of cities above.





Take Another Look At . . . is a joint poetry project between Sally Crawford and Enrico. Using our camera lenses as well as our poet's eye, we report on what we see as we go about our business as working poetry reporters. We take photographs of the unpoetic as well as of the transcendent in our chosen cities; here, Enrico shows us Orléans, the city liberated by Joan of Arc in 1429, and pictures taken in the surrounding area.
