The Paper Crane Poets Collective is a local writers’ collective, based at Beeston Library in Nottingham.


Paper Cranes is a space for poetry writers of all stripes and abilities to meet, create and connect. We support local writers to develop their poetry skills and improve their confidence.


The collective is facilitated by Leanne Moden, and the group meets every first and third Tuesday of the month at Beeston Library.


We run fun and friendly workshops, creating a supportive writing environment. We experiment with writing, drafting and editing poetry, as well as dabbling in performances too!


If you live, work or study in Nottingham, and you're interested in joining the collective, please email for further details!
