By discussing the themes, structures and vocabulary of sample poems, we can apply those features within our own works.

Each participant will then be assisted in producing a short composition which is read aloud to the group. Every contribution receives tailored and detailed feedback.


Benefits of the group:

People who have never written poetry before can be encouraged into using it as a form of self-expression. Those who are more qualified writers are encouraged to find inspiration to write more.

We learn about a wide range of fields, genres and movements and often delve into history or the origins of words.

The group has no requirements other than the ability to listen and to write.

Sharing is encouraged but not compulsory.
