Poetry

Convenor: Muriel 01434 681479

Welcome! If you love to read poetry aloud, and hear poetry read aloud by others, this is the place for you. Our monthly readings are usually "own choice" - we bring our own selections of poems.

We don't usually set a theme but as our next meeting is on 13th February we have chosen Love (not just in romantic terms).

We sit around a table and each person reads a poem in turn. The number of 'rounds' depends of course on the number of people present and the lengths of the poems. We have 9 members including two associate members from Prudhoe and District U3A.

We tend not to analyse or critique the poems (or the readings!). We do sometimes ask for a poem or a verse or a line to be read a second time if it is particularly striking or hard to 'get'. Occasionally, a member will bring a poem they have written but mostly we rely on established and 'emerging' poets.

We meet on the second Thursday of each month (except August) from 1.30-3.30 pm. The venue is: CORE Music, 14 A/B Gilesgate, Hexham, NE46 3NJ. There is a car park opposite (beside Hexham Community Centre) as well as on-street parking. If you cannot negotiate steps, there is a rear entrance: walk up the hill about 10 yards to the recess in the wall which allows you to access, via the boardwalk over the stream, the back door to Core Music. Refreshments are available from CORE Music - self-service; donations.

Do let Sally or any member know if you want to join us or come to a free 'taster' session. You will be most welcome.
