Forewords

Word from the President

James Knox WhitetWelcome to the Suffolk Poetry Society. It's a privilege to be President of one of Britain's oldest poetry societies which has been promoting poetry in Suffolk and beyond for well over half a century.

Word from the Chair

Florence Cox

Thank you to those members and committee members of SPS who asked me to stand for the position of Chair of Suffolk Poetry Society. I hope I can merit the confidence placed in me, and I would like to pay tribute to Ian Griffiths and the excellent committee members who have done their best to reassure me about the role of Chair and get me up to speed with current projects.


Chapter & Verse - May 2016

 

This month James writes about the great Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi (1798 - 1837).


The 3rd Festival of Suffolk Poetry at the John Peel Centre, Stowmarket, IP14 1ET is less than a week away now this coming Saturday 28th May. There are still a few places available on the workshops.

Felixstowe Book Festival 25th-26th June 2016

It is never too soon to begin planning events for 2016! The planning of Felixstowe Book Festival is well under way. When I, Penny Cutler, met the Director of Felixstowe Book Festival on Friday 20th November to discuss Felixstowe Café Poets input (we were there in 2015 and will be in 2016) I was also given information about some music and poetry events planned for 2016. Felixstowe Book Festival takes place on 25th and 26th June 2016 so why not put those dates in your diary now, as you would not want to miss anything.
