Poets are doing it for themselves.

Words are cheap unless it's prose or poetry, so it's good to know how well attended local poetry meets are despite the wintry blast of artic winds trying to convince us all to stay at home in front of the great glass teat known as television.
Thanet's Own Poets are going from strength to strength with their latest batch of events which receive not a penny from public funding. The next two Poetry Appreciation events take place at Mrs Corby's Tearooms, York Street, Ramsgate from 11.00-13.00 on the 6th of May and the 3rd of June, with a Poetry Workshop also there on 20th May. Poetry & Potatoes at SandyWiches is 19.30-21.30 on 19th April and 17th May. Lastly and by no means least is Poems and Pints at the Brown Jug in Dumpton Park on 27th April and 26th May. They have dates confirmed into next year which I'll share as they approach.
Also watch out for the East Kent Poetry Review at the Swallow Hotel in Ramsgate on alternate Sunday Afternoons (14.00-16.00) and consider indulging in the East Kent Poetry Review anthology - number 2 on sale at many events, as well as the Albion Bookshop, Margate Library, and other venues with good artistic taste.
