South Lakes

Poetry and Prose Reading

Co-ordinator: Stella Canwell
Meetings: last Thursday the month - detached room at Castle Street Centre

Each meeting has a theme (chosen in advance by the group) and we bring
poetry and/or prose, on the theme, to read out and share with the others. If you
wish you can attend and simply listen.Every month we choose a subject and our members bring two or three related pieces of poetry and prose no longer than five minutes each. There is a wide diversity of material and we enjoy the afternoon immensely. We broaden our experience of literature and enjoy other peoples tastes.

You are welcome to join the group as an active member or just come to listen. You can contact our coordinator Stella Canwell via the Message Link at top right

UPDATE 4 APRIL

We are now a group of 30 and although it is unlikely we will all attend at the same time I feel I should ask that you do not select overlong pieces. Although we were but 12 attending on Thursday last we filled the full two hours with our offerings! I'm conscious that my own choice was one of the longer ones! I don't wish to stifle, our meetings are a real pleasure but I write in the spirit of being fair to all

wishing you all a happy Easter and looking forward to our next meeting
