What we're about

" . . . Explain how poetry pursues the human like the smitten moon above the weeping, laughing earth . . ."

We just want to read and enjoy published poetry, whether it be by famous or less well-established writers. Bring poetry that you love, that puzzles you, that you want to share. You just need to be prepared to share thoughts and ideas and hopefully have fun!

Let's meet up and read poetry! And discuss it!

The Farm Tavern

£1.00

We have had a few sessions now in which attendees bring poems loosely concerning relationships, in particular by Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. So just a reminder: the poem should fit onto a page of A4 and you need to bring enough photocopies so that everyone can see the poem. We usually manage to read two or three poems in the two hours, and this fact might inform what you decide to bring, in that it needs to have a fair amount of 'meat' to prompt discussion. If you have something you'd like to bring, it would be helpful if you could let us know what it is by adding a comment to this meetup.
