Our friendly group – which can have up to 16/17 members – usually meets on the third Wednesday of the month in the church hall on Towers Avenue at 7pm.

By exception, our next meeting is on Wednesday 31 October 2018 and the theme for the evening – appropriately – will be Halloween.

You are very welcome to come along with a published poem of your choice related to the month’s theme and share it with fellow lovers of poetry over a glass of wine. There is no charge for admission and all are welcome.

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.
