Poetry Venues

Due to the growing interest in poetry, most first timers are always eager to sample other venues that host poetry events as well as get information on which other venues are out there.

I have therefore decided to dedicate a page for the listing of these events. If you run a poetry event which I have not listed, please get intouch with me on njeriwangari(at)kenyanpoet(dot)com for a listing.
