Sutton Coldfield

Poetry

Place:United Reformed Church, Sutton Coldfield, B73 6AA
Day:Fourth Tuesdays in the month.
Time:10.30 am
Cost:£1

Definitive meeting dates are displayed in the Monthly Programme.

Each meeting starts with sharing knowledge of the life and work of a particular poet. This is followed by poetry on a particular theme and, time permitting, members are invited to share their favourite poem with the Group. The choice of poets and themes is decided by the group members at each meeting so, in true U3A style, the group is run by the members for the members.

The main object of the group is to expand everyone's enjoyment of the genre by learning about particular poets and sharing the results with their fellow members, some of whom may not yet appreciate just how wide ranging and enjoyable poetry can be.

Also it is hoped that we can invite local poets along to share their experience with us. So, if you don't want to miss an opportunity to enhance your life, come along and join us.

If you would like to learn more about this group, please send our organiser a message via the 'flying bird' icon at the top right hand side of this page (or at the foot of the page if viewing on a mobile device).
