WOMEN’S GROUP WILL BE INTRODUCED TO THE JOYS OF POETRY
I will be giving a workshop for the Horizon Women’s group on Wednesday, 15 March 2017. It will take place in the Main Hall of Ithaca House between 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
I have been the organiser of the local group of The Poetry Society since April 2008, and run monthly groups, where Poetry Society members who live in Newham, can come along and read and discuss each other’s poems.
For the session, I will be reading a poem out loud by a famous, British poet, and then attendees will use that as a “springboard” to write their own poem on a similar or linked topic. We will then read out what we have written, if we are happy to do so. Comments will only be encouraged if the person who has written the poem is willing to hear them.
