New booklet launch. Three Cheers!




Like all decent pockets, our new booklet is a portable repository of poetic sweeties, scrunched up stories, a wad of drawings, and other intriguing detritus and fluff. 

The idea was to publish and distribute the issue on POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY, April 28th, but distribution will now be some time next week due to factors beyond our control, beneath our understanding and not worth discussing. 

In the meantime, enjoy some digital highlights and share your thoughts with us using the comments below!

Three Cheers Saturday Photo Club (Season 1)

Get snapping your Kodaks!  It's the first-ever Three Cheers Saturday Photo Club, which took place on 30th January, 2021. The themes were:  1. Odd Condiments 2. Drearyiness As founder of the club, Steve got to share his favourite contributions from the Dreary Condiment category. Steve's speech in full:  Thank you Tom. Being rather new to this role I have noted down what judges on TV talent shows do so I just want to say you fully deserve to be in this competition, you nailed it and good job! Right, strange homebaking lady and I have carefully considered the entries. The best condiment pic goes to Tom’s condiment shoe racing. A fine and powerful work that is playful in intent yet subtle in executing. Execution. The best dreary pic goes to John’s curtain stain. A homage to grubbiness, dreariness and the utter shiteness of lockdown. There is a special judge’s merit award for Tony’s ventriloquist dummy pic which although neither dreary or condiment themed had the best backstory. Wel
