Welcome

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.

About Poetry

Poetry … is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own.” — Salvatore
