Because of corona the Launch event on the 14th of April is cancelled. The new date is the 12th of May.

The Groningen Poetry Stanza is proud to congratulate our member Cecile Bol for her poetry debut, Fold Me a Fishtail, published by Selcouth Station Press. Please join us on the evening of Thursday the 12th of May to celebrate her creative milestone. Cecile will read poetry from her book and of course it will be possible to buy a copy. Several other members of our poetry group will also read some of their work. A perfect opportunity to enjoy English poetry written in the Groningen area!

Poet Cecile Bol

Cecile Bol is a Dutch writer with a small family and a big edible garden in the north of the Netherlands. Several of her poems have been published in anthologies, poetry journals and literary magazines. Some have called her poems ‘whimsical’, ‘unafraid’ ‘technical enterprises’ and she’s quite happy with those descriptions. Fold Me a Fishtail is a collection of mostly confessional poetry about a long journey into, through and out of (?) the dark.

Irish pub O’Ceallaigh – reservation highly recommended

The launch event for Cecile Bol’s poetry chapbook will take place in the lounge of Irish pub O’Ceallaigh (Gedempte Kattendiep 13, Groningen). Though we’d love to welcome everybody, there’s a maximum capacity of around 25 people. To be sure of a place in the audience, please send an email to and we’ll put your name down on our list.

We start at 8 PM sharp 😀

Come in, order a drink and settle down at 7.45 PM or so. We’ll read our poetry and cheer for Cecile from 8 PM till around 9 PM. After that, you’re welcome to have a chat and another drink. Cecile will also bring some copies of Fold Me a Fishtail, for sale for € 10. We hope to meet you on the 12th of May!
