Nottingham's Poetry Scene

Poet's Diary

Oh My Nottz Diary pages are going through the most bizarre changes that you can imagine.

All the events have been taken down, because ...

... nothing is ‘actually’ happening across Nottz ...

... well ‘actually’ anywhere ...

... but there are going to be lots of ‘virtual’ things happening ...

... just as soon as people can get them up and running.

We will be posting those events as soon we are made aware of them. If you are hosting a virtual event and you want a bit of extra publicity the send us a link.

Fragmented Voices

We are searching for Love Poems for our first print anthology. Most of us love someone or something, and are loved, even if we do not fully understand the feeling.

Poetry Undercover

 So it's gotten kinda crazy out there... We at Poetry Undercover are opting to come out of hiatus! Our sister event, Crosswords Open Mic, has changed format to better suit the current need for social distancing and we plan to do just the same.

Going forward, I would like everyone to consider this page a sharing forum for poetry and song lyrics that inspire you. Whether you post in a written, audio or video format, it would be wonderful to have a place that we can share .
