The Poetry Society

Who are we?

The Poetry Society is the official society for all your poetry needs at MMU. With weekly activities and meet-ups, there’s plenty for our members to get involved with!

The Poetry Society prides itself on being a tolerant, open space where people can share their poetry.


In Summer, the Poetry Society was declared Manchester Metropolitan University’s ‘Best New Society’ for 2020/21.

In the City of Literature, we are the only Society in Manchester Metropolitan University where like-minded poets can come together.

Whether you’re new to poetry or have been writing for a while, we’re always here to support your creative passion.
