 Poetry Lovers Group

Group Leader – Stephie Billington (01202 986902)

Wednesday 2.00 – 3.30.  Start date: Wed 16 January 2019.

Venue:  Verwood address to be supplied.

This group is for lovers of poetry who wish to learn a little more about poetry and share their favourites with others.  It is intended to be an active, participatory group, with contributions from all members in terms of ideas, information and suggestions for activities. No “sitting back” is allowed!

It will be a small group, run fortnightly at my home, and I will be acting as facilitator.  It will be very much group-led, not tutor-led, with everyone’s ideas hopefully accommodated in due course. 

 The format for the sessions will be decided at our first meeting, and developed as the group grows and progresses. Although poetry can be a serious subject it can also be fun, and that is what I aim for members to experience – “serious fun”!

I have been a lover of poetry since childhood.  I am not an expert, but I do know a little about it and I always enjoy learning more.  There is always a poetry book open somewhere in the house, and Mike and I spend happy times reading poems to each other.  I thought I'd start a new poetry lovers group for people who are enthusiastic about poetry in all its forms.  I'm hoping for an exciting venture!
