In the first half of the meeting, we will respond to this exercise - so we'll all end up with a draft to continue working on at home. There is usually time for a read-round of drafts before breaking for refreshments - but no obligation to share these if people would prefer not to.
After tea, coffee and biscuits, we'll share the poems we've brought to the meeting, giving and receiving helpful, constructive comments to help us become good "self-editors".
As usual, please bring writing materials ... and about 7 or 8 copies of a poem you have already written. The workshop costs £5 for the 3 hour session. Members who have opted to pay an annual subscription pay slightly less.
The workshop is 7pm - 10pm upstairs (Rosalind Room) at Parmoor House, 13 Lypiatt Terrace (parallel with Lypiatt Road), Cheltenham, GL50 2SX.
We are always pleased to welcome new members, so if you haven't given us a try before, this is an excellent opportunity to try us out. As the photo shows, we are a friendly bunch!
