Welcome To Shortlands Poetry Circle.
Over 100 years of poetry appreciation. Members & visitors meet twice a month during term time to share poems on particular topics or by particular poets. Visitors are very welcome. Just turn up or contact us. Come and join us for the pleasure of poetry in a friendly atmosphere (bring 2 poems to read, but not your own, 1 must be short) and a long chat over tea and biscuits.
President: Anne Stewart.
Membership Secretary: Christine Pope 020 8464 9810
‘Everything you invent is true: you can be sure of that. Poetry is a subject as precise as geometry.’ ~ Julian Barnes
As has been the case since early Spring, all these meetings have been made possible by the use of the Zoom app which we have installed on our computers. This works well and time is made for an initial chat, though we long to return to talking ‘face to face’ at Ripley.
Using The Links To Find Events
Although a selection of poetry events is published on this blog, the link to The Poetry Library (on the right hand side of the page) offers much more. Besides News, Events and Competitions you can search the Poetry Library catalogue and see which magazines are stocked.
Give it a try.
