Our friendly group – which has up to 16/17 members – meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 7pm.

Meetings continue to be held via Zoom and the next one will take place on Wednesday 18 May at 7pm.

This will be the second week of the Jesmond Festival and new participants will be most welcome to take part f they contact the Parish Office for the Zoom link. There is no theme for this meeting and people can choose what they please or find interesting.

When social gathering can resume, all will be welcome, with or without a previously published poem, to join our informal and merry group.

Please note that the following ground rules apply to our meetings:

  • Everyone is welcome, with or without a poem.
  • As the meeting only lasts 90 minutes and with numbers often as high as 16 or 17, out of courtesy and respect, no-one should speak for longer than 5 minutes. This time is to include any introduction to the poem and the discussion that follows afterwards.
  • One of the best aspects of this group is the wide range of published poetry included at each meeting. This is to be welcomed and applauded.
