We are a small group of poetry enthusiasts who meet fortnightly on Wednesday afternoons at Manvers Street Baptist Church to read and discuss poetry. We take it in turns to present two consecutive sessions on a particular poet, so each member's turn comes around approximately once a year.
We also have Free Choice sessions when we each share one or two poems with the group.
We cover a wide range of poets from the writer of Beowulf to Simon Armitage and from Yevgeny Yevtushenko to Maya Angelou.
We currently have our full complement of 12 members, but vacancies do arise from time to time so please don’t hesitate to contact Robin, our convenor, if you would like to know more.
u3a members can contact us via the details in the members’ newsletter. Non‑members can email us at:
