Cheltenham Poetry Society's Reading Group meets 7pm - 10pm on the third Tuesday of each month, except December (when there isn't a meeting).
Meetings alternate monthly between:
a) published poems (not our own) on the topics listed below and
b) poems by a specific poet (as listed for the dates asterisked below).
Please bring about 8 copies of 2 – 3 poems on the topic or by the famous poet.
On the asterisked dates (designated Poets Alive!) attendees are also invited (if they wish - no obligation) to bring one or two of their own poems. These could either relate in some way to the poems by the well-known poet - by subject, theme or style - or provide an
interesting contrast with the famous poet’s work.
Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings - at the bargain price of just £3, to include refreshments!
