Poetry Patch

Poetry Patch

The group is open to anyone who enjoys poetry. It meets on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 11am. The group has a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 8 members.

How the group works:
Taking it in turns, a volunteer member of the group choses a theme for the next meeting. There is no pressure to do this, but it is good to be involved. That member selects two poems by two different poets on their chosen theme to compare and contrast. They will also do a little bit of research about the poets and the poems.
Two weeks before each meeting the member leading the session tells the Group Leader the theme and their chosen poems/poets. The Group Leader will email other group members telling them the theme and the poems that have been chosen so they can look them up, and think a bit about the poems and the poets in advance of the meeting. Members will also be asked to find other poems either on the same theme, or by the same poets, to read out at the meeting.

The meetings start with the two selected poems and their background information being presented by the member leading the meeting and then there is an open discussion. Following on from that, all the other members read out the poems they have found for appreciation and discussion by the group.
The group meetings take place over Zoom and other communication between the group leader and group members are by email.

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact the Groups Co-Ordinator.
