Who the * do we think we are?

We write poetry in English. During our meetings we share our work to get constructive feedback. Some call this ‘workshopping’ and they are probably right. Everybody is welcome during the open meetings/workshops of the Groningen Poetry Stanza, as long as you bring some English poetry you wrote and are willing (or rather, hoping) to receive feedback. We can guarantee you: your poetry will improve!

Other events are in the cards: open mic nights, exhibitions, the whole lot. View our calendar for any planned events.

Just because we can, we are an official Stanza registered with the Poetry Society. That makes the Groningen Poetry Stanza the only Poetry Society Stanza of the Netherlands. We are kinda proud of that.
