We have now been meeting for about four years and do so on the second Friday of the month at 2.30 p.m. in Henfield. As we meet in our homes there is a limit to the size of our group but we will always try to accommodate newcomers.
We have a structure to our meetings in which one of our members makes a presentation about either a particular poet, a group of poets or a style of poetry. This usually involves a short biography and a sight-reading of poems followed by a discussion. We then break for refreshment and the second half is devoted to a specific theme which the members are free to develop as they wish.
People are often very diffident at first claiming to know nothing about poetry although loving it! After a session or two you will realise how informal and delighful it is and how poems can affect you deeply (or not!) and how much you can get from it all.
We are about to finalise our programme for next year so if you would like more details contact me :- Rosemary Nice 01273 492221
