Poetry Reading

Two groups who study and read works of other poets


Poetry for Pleasure

Meets: 4th Wednesday of the Month

Time: 14:00 – 16:00

We read and discuss the work of one or two poets that we have nominated at the previous meeting. Members are also invited to read poetry of their choice.

Poets we have considered recently included: Pope, Stevie Smith, Nigel Forde, Browning, Wordsworth and Shakespeare.


Poetry Reading 1

Meets: 2nd Wednesday of the Month

Time: 14:15 – 16:15

We read and discuss poetry. Meetings generally focus on a particular poet chosen in advance. A group member introduces the meeting by briefly telling us about the poet’s life and each of us then reads selected poems. But we are a democratic group and this format may be varied from time to time as members decide.


Poetry Reading 2

Meets: 1st Wednesday

Time: 14:00 – 16:00
