Founded in the 1980s, Poets Live is the oldest running anglophone poetry reading series in Paris, France. We concentrate on an eclectic range of poetry, all styles and tastes, instream and outstream, underground and overground, on the page and off the page. We present poets that visit Paris to read, as well as poets living in Paris. Our goal is to explore the vast international spectrum of contemporary poetry.
If you’d like to know what’s happening in the anglophone poetry and prose communities in Paris, the Paris Lit Up events calendar is a good place to start. You can ﬁnd more information about us on facebook and twitter or you can email us.
