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.

When: Thursday, November 30
Time: 6:00pm - 8pm

The stars are our skyward companions. Their grandeur is our muse for story telling, wish fulfilment and dreams of interstellar exploration. Bring your own poem, or one you found and join us in conversation.
Sorry to announce that we will take a break from Nibbles & Scribbles - just too many things on the go!
