About Buzzwords

"A warm, intelligent - and going on the evidence of the floor readings - a very talented group, Buzzwords was a great venue for reading and listening." - George Szirtes

"Had a really exhilarating evening as guest poet at Buzzwords in Cheltenham last night.
It's meticulously organised by Angela France, with everything running smoothly and to time, and with such a friendly, enthusiastic group of poet-participants. I was really impressed with the quality of the first draft poetry that was produced during the workshop and the standard of the open mic readings was also extremely high." - Susan Richardson

"I had a fun night reading as guest poet at poet Angela France's Buzzwords series, in Cheltenham last night - it's a tight-knit group of serious, local poets, who gather for workshops, open mics, and guest readings, every month, back of a pub. The sound system is professional, and the listening mostly very attentive. The poets presented a strong field during the open mic. They also buy books, a good sign." - Todd Swift
