In May each year we meet to select our chosen poets for the next session. Six of our meetings concern the life, times and work of the chosen poets. Two meetings take the form of a group choice of topic for instance the seasons, cities or friendship. Selected poets this past year were Billy Collins, Benjamin Zephaniah, Mary Queen of Scots combined with Rupi Kaur, John Clare, Clive James and John Masefield. Each of these sessions was led by a different member. The topic sessions were Possessions and Conflict.

The last half hour takes the form of ‘Poetry Please’ when each member brings a poem which may be an old favourite, or something quite new and says a sentence about what appeals in the poem or what informed its selection. In recent years we have invited a Perthshire poet to lead a session or a person with particular knowledge of the poetry of a region or country.
