Popup Poetry Group
Join the group waitlist via Beacon Members Portal
Still got that ‘locked down’ feeling? Desperate for something new to think about, and lively minds to share your ideas with?
Pop-up Poetry is like a book group where the required reading is sometimes only 14 lines long! We’ll be talking about how the ideas in the poems impact on us, and how the poets achieve that impact.
Once a fortnight members will receive, by email, two poems with a related theme and a little background information about each writer. Members will also receive suggested questions for the discussion, which will take place over Zoom. Guidance on the use of Zoom will be sent out in advance for anybody new to this very easy to use tool.
The group meets fortnightly on Tuesdays and the Zoom sessions last around 1hr 45min.
Once the group is up and running, if we do get more interest, perhaps some of the existing members of the group might like to start their own overflow groups. The idea could spread faster than Coronavirus.
Please address any queries to the Groups Co-Ordinator and quote Popup in your message.
