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!

Our theme this week is numbers. They inform superstition, keep score, calculate and assign value. They are the language of maths, physics, stock markets, phone books and binary code. Bring your own poem, or one you found and join us in conversation. When possible, bring 8-ish printed copies of the poem are you reading.
Sorry to announce that we will take a break from Nibbles & Scribbles - just too many things on the go!
