The Brighton & Hove Quill of Poetry was founded by Terry Godwin and Geoff Tabrah in 2016.
We hold two meetings a week, both at the Brighthelm Community Centre. On Mondays (except bank holidays), we meet informally at the Centre from 3-4pm or longer to read and discuss poetry; all are welcome to join us. On Thursdays, we have a reading in the Radio Room from 4-5pm; space for this is limited to seven persons so we need to arrange this in advance.
The Thursday Radio Room reading is recorded, and you can listen to it from the next day on Mixcloud/Terry and Geoff (see below for link). You can read or have your poetry read, just listen, and be recorded. We are keen to hear from more poets, have more members join our group, and hear from poets who would like to chat with us in our radio room.
We have also been compiling “We love Brighton and Hove”, a book of poems written by Sussex poets, which will be published in Autumn 2017. (See details of event 22 September 2017)

Around twenty experienced and experimental writers meet fortnightly in the cosy back room at Rottingdean Club, where we share ‘homework’ set by that month’s Chair, read from works in progress and participate in creative exercises to improve our writing. We also enjoy occasional guest speakers from literary or academic backgrounds.

Shoreham Wordfest is a community arts organisation, featuring an annual autumn literary festival and a range of activities throughout the year including school and community projects, creative writing workshops, competitions and slams, drama productions.
Our aim is to develop local creativity as well as featuring inspirational authors and performers.
The Club exists to encourage the writing of plays, especially by local people. These plays are given a staged reading, and then constructively criticised. We meet monthly on Sunday evenings at the New Venture Theatre, Bedford Place, Brighton.
