About Poetry London

Poetry London's artistic vision is based on the understanding that 'the best poetry' includes the broadest variety of styles and subjects, and that the very best of that poetry often acts as an unacknowledged catalyst for change. Our understanding of change is that it is argumentative and uninhibited and Poetry London will do all it can to encourage that kind of poetry and be a home to it. Poetry London is committed to supporting, empowering, and uplifting racially and ethnically marginalized writers.

    It was good environment within the RSA Great Hall amongst of a group reasonably friendly participants with a drink and then get on the serious business of life drawing with a model and instructor. The session could be improved with more explicit explanations of the purpose behind the practical drawing exercise about poses just before the session.
