Bello Bards

We’re poets and lovers of poetry who, since Bello Bards was founded by Marti Guy in March, 2007, have met in Bellingen on the last Friday of every month at 6:30pm, at varying venues. We are, perhaps it might be said, a ‘moveable feast’ as well as a travelling band of troubadours and their audience. We always dine together and anyone who wants to get up and have a go reading their own or someone else’s poetry, is as welcome as those who just like to listen.

Open to new members

Jacarandas

Our purpose is to encourage writers who are interested in sharing and expanding their writing in a friendly, non-competitive and safe environment. We meet twice a month in person, so that we have a chance to explore our writing by submitting between 500 and 2000 words each month.
