Crowborough

Poetry

This informal, lively group meets the third Friday of every month at 2.00 pm.

Unfortunately, for reasons of space, we are now closed, but if you would like to be put on a waiting list, please let me know, and, when there are sufficient members, we can start another group.

The anthology "Poetry Please", (Roger McGough), is the mainstay from which we have chosen themes, or from which individual members have presented poets.

We read their works out loud, in true bardic tradition, then discuss Life, the Universe, and Everything.
We have ranged through classic poets such as Wordsworth, Hardy, and Yeats. We consider themes such as "New," encompassing old and new poets, or we just discuss poems we like - along with a bit of autobiographical detail about the poet, as researched by members of the group.
We are fun, friendly, and not superficial, and hope you will be able to form another group a bit like us!

If you are interested then please contact the group leader via the bluebird link on this page.
