When Lucille Clifton was asked what American poetry was, she replied, ‘I am an American poet: this is American poetry’. Not an elusive answer, her response speaks to the huge variety and scope of American poetry today. With this in mind, the Nottingham Poetry Series brings five very different voices together for four days of intense workshops, craft talks, conferencing, and community.

Events will take place at locations across Nottingham. Please check back regularly for updates. To receive emails pertaining to the American Poets events, including early ticket availability, please write to thisis@nottinghampoetryseries.com.
