Meeting April 3

The next meeting will be at 7.30, Wednesday, April 3, at Coffee Corner. I plan to lead a workshop – with two different types of activity taking place. Firstly – if anyone would like to submit a poem they have written for a detailed and supportive reading by group members, I will pass it on and make it available (anonymised). Secondly – I’ll arrange some writing activities, which will be based on language games, and will I think prove enjoyable. I am a firm believer in Pooh Bear poetics: “Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go to where they can find you.”

The subsequent event planned is an investigation of what is or isn’t poetry (May 1) – I’d like to get us to consider what we might feel are borderline poems (genuinely questioning is it or isn’t it?), absolutely not poems (even though it might claim to be or look line one), and maybe absolutely pure & unchallengeable poems on which we feel all must agree. We’ll maybe explore this more a little next week. Then in June (June 5) a more simple session of sharing poems, either written by us or that we would like others to share.
