Introduction to Fire River Poets and our Website.

We are a small number of enthusiastic poets who founded a group  in Taunton, Somerset, in 1988.

The Group offers a forum for active poets interested in improving their work and gaining feedback in a supportive environment.

Many members give poetry readings (both locally and around the country) and have had collections published.

This Website gives more information about us and the events we hold throughout the year such as 

* Public Poetry Readings * Open Mic evenings * Competitions and other Events*
