Lunenburg Get Togethers
Spot of Poetry illustrations

Every Second Thursday Evening
6 – 7:30pm

Lunenburg Library, Room 101
97 Kaulbach St, Lunenburg, NS

Whether you are a long-time reader and writer of poetry, or new and unsure of whether or not you “get it”, you are welcome here!

Spot of Poetry Get-Togethers are informal gatherings where all levels of poetry readers and writers are welcome. Generally speaking, each person reads a poem aloud, we chat about it as a group, and then listen to the poem again. We also share some of our own writing based on the week’s theme. Strictly no pressure!

See the Reading Log & Prompt Archive down below.
