Second Light is a support network of circa 350 members, from those who are new to writing and have no publishing record as yet, to those who are fully established and have published several collections. Most would be delighted to be asked to read at events. Many run workshops and creative writing courses.
 
Each member is entitled to a page on site: a short profile, a poem, a short list of collections, and those contact details they wish to be made public. There is no editorial restriction on the content of these pages. Poems may have been previously published. The poems (excluding those of Committee Members) are eligible for selection as the online Poem of the Month competition.

Members: submit a page or amendment         Lest we forget…
