Welcome to Poets Live. Founded in the 1980s, we are the oldest running anglophone poetry reading series in Paris. We offer an eclectic range of poetry, all styles and tastes, instream and outstream, from the anglophonie, from outside the anglophonie. We want poets visiting Paris to read, we want poets living in Paris to read. Our goal is to explore the breadth of modern anglophonic poetry.

Our events, held one Tuesday a month, are kindly hosted by Berkeley Books of Paris , 8, rue Casimir-Delavigne, 75006 Paris, Metro 0déon. We invite you to come early to browse the marvelous selection of literature available in this unique bookstore.

If you’re not on our mailing list, and would like to receive information about our events, please subscribe now. You can also find us on facebook and twitter or you can email us.
