I'm delighted that John Wells so enjoyed his meal at the Poetry Cafe, "Getting lyrical, on a budget", Review, 20 October) but must correct two points. First, the Poetry Society doesn't subsidise the cafe; the cafe provides the society with much-needed income to run its poetry readings, talks and workshops. Second, you do need to be a member of the society to use the cafe, but membership is open to all and starts at only pounds 10 a year.
