The Poetry Salon is held in the sumptuous Nude Room at The Glebe Hotel. Each month we feature two established poets alongside a Mascara Literary Review sponsored Emerging Poet. The event was conceived to give feature poets more time to share a good cross section of their work with an eager audience keen to hear more.

The event is free, but we would love you to consider buying our poets’ books on the night. The Glebe Hotel has an excellent bistro & bar –– the wine flows & the poetry sings.  ‘Do join us’.
