Poetry at the Library

Bream Library runs three poetry posts to showcase the work of local poets. Two are in The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire at Bream and Yorkley. One is in Portland, Oregon, USA. Each contains the latest poem from our local poets. Look out for them.


Many local poets have shared their work with the Library. You can find their poems in The Poetry Archive.
