Radlett & District

Poetry

This group is using Zoom teleconferencing for the meetings - please use the Carrier Pigeon for details of the next meeting

We meet on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 10.30am. We have 12 members with several more on a waiting list. A few more might make a second group viable. Please sign up at the monthly meeting or via the carrier pigeon on this page if you would like to join the waiting list.

We have a regular attendance of 8 or more. We meet in members' homes over coffee (and delicious biscuits). We have no "expert" leader so we take turns to do a little background research and lead a session. Usually members bring a poem by the chosen poet or on a theme.

We read and discuss, often referring to stirred memories in our lives, and often with much merriment.

Poets we have so far encountered include Carol-Ann Duffy, The Liverpool poets, Philip Larkin and WB Yeats. We have also shared some of our favourite poems and enjoyed others on the theme of Spring.

Leader: Rita Wheal
