What is Performance Poetry

Poetry is a way of expressing our feelings.

There are many thousands of people who write poetry, be it a single poem never published, or many poems that were published in a big or small way.
Performance Poets are significantly fewer in number. They have to recite their own poem, which many would feel nervous about doing. Equally as important is that the poem itself has to be suitable as a poem that can be presented to an audience without those listening becoming bored.
What are suitable poems?
Firstly, any poem that is well written and of interest to those listening.
Secondly, Humorous poems are almost always well received by an audience.
Thirdly, poetry with a strong emotional message, or content.
Reading a poem out loud with correct emphasis, timing and clarity of voice is almost
as important as the content of the poem itself.
About Us
The Performance Poetry Organisation is a non-profit making organisation that exists
as a centre for all those poets who enjoy performing their work.
We intend to organise our own meetings at venues where poets can stand up and read their poem in front of an appreciative
audience. These events will usually be on a Saturday. We are to commence with an event in Driffield, East Yorkshire
in November 2018.  If you are a poet, and would like to read out one or more of your poems at this event please email:
