Keats House Forum

"One of the most consistently quality afternoons of poetry I’ve attended, with a variety of styles and themes to entertain and inform" - Sabotage Reviews

"The best open mic event I've been to in Europe" - Derrick Brown (Write Bloody Publishing)
The Keats House Poets Forum is a group of young emerging poets working in London. We organise poetry workshops and performance events with The Keats House Museum in Hampstead. Our aim is to increase young people's interaction with heritage sites like Keats House Museum using poetry and performance.

Founders 'Raymond Antrobus' and 'Simon Mole' work with their core members which include; Dean Atta, Deanna Rodger, Laila Sumpton, Kaamil Ahmed, Anthony Hett & Stephanie Turner.

The Keats House Poetry Forum runs a public Open Mic poetry reading/performance one sunday of every month. The event takes place in Lord Byron's living room and past readers have included Niall O'Sullivan, Karen Macarthy, Roger Robinson, Aoife Mannix, Inua Ellams, Jasmin Cooray, Bohdan Piasecki, Derrick Brown, Kayo Chingonyi, Joe Dunthorne, John Hegley, Warsan Shire, Indigo Williams, Miriam Nash, Malika Booker, Nii Parkes, Hannah Lowe, Sam Riverie and Tom Chivers.
