Meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 10.30am in a member’s home.
Despite the rather dry-sounding name of our group, we are kept young and lively by the excitement of looking into poems as if they were deep rock-pools, with different things swimming around inside them. Some of us belong to other poetry groups, where we simply share poems we like; in this group though we venture a little further, often engaging with poems that are new to us or poems that don’t yield all their treasures at once. Sometimes, we’re defeated, but we’re never discouraged: we’re always glad to have made the effort. We take it in turns to choose a poet, and then select half a dozen or so of their poems, with every member having a chance to look at them in advance of our meetings.
