About The Cannon's Mouth

The Cannon's Mouth CoverCannon Poets have been meeting monthly since December 1983.  Meetings are on the first Sunday of each month [except August] in the Moseley Exchange, Post Office Building, 149-153, Alcester Road, Moseley, Birmingham B13 8JP. Please check our website for further details and news of our annual poetry competition:


The Cannon’s Mouth is the quarterly journal of Cannon Poets. It aims to stimulate interest and encourage the participation of members and the wider community in the writing of poetry and its presentation to the public.

All rights remain with the authors. Material published in The Cannon’s Mouth may preclude that material from being entered in poetry competitions. If material has previously been published elsewhere, the editor should be informed so that proper acknowledgement can be made.

The current editor is Greg Cox.
