Covid

Throughout the Covid restrictions the Poetry Writing Group have continued to run successfully using email, telephone and, when the weather permitted, an occasional outdoor meeting. Until the membership is confident enough to meet indoors again this this manner of working will continue.

We hope to run the meetings as a series of workshops. During each session we will do writing exercises to promote our own creativity as well as reading work by established poets, looking at various themes and forms of poetry ie: sonnet/villanelle/ haiku/free verse etc. We will explore the way, as Philip Larkin says, the emotion starts in the poet and ends up in the reader...' You will be expected to bring copies of your own poems to each meeting for discussion. If you don't produce any writing between meetings this doesn't matter - you are welcome to come along and share in the discussion.
