I’m looking forward to our first Poetry Society Stanza meeting of 2017 after missing January’s meeting because of being under the weather. 😦

The first meeting is on Monday 13th February, 6pm – 8pm, at Trowbridge Town Hall.  You don’t need to be a member of the Poetry Society or to live in Trowbridge to join our friendly group.  We welcome anyone aged 16 and over with an interest in reading, writing and talking about poetry.  This month, as well as reading and commenting on each other’s work, we’ll also be reading and talking about the latest release from Candlestick Press, Ten Poems from Ireland.

Latest release from Candlestick Press

We were thrilled to be chosen by Candlestick Press as the ‘Trowbridge Collective’, one of a select group of people across the UK who receive complimentary copies of Candlestick’s publications in return for honest feedback.

Our second meeting in February, for those people who can’t attend Monday’s meeting or who prefer a daytime meeting, will be on Thursday, 23rd February, 10am – 12pm at The Studio Cafe, Drawing Projects UK, Bridge House, Trowbridge (right next to the train station).

If you’d like to receive updates about poetry events in and around Trowbridge, I’ve put together a newsletter which I try to send out once a month.  I hope to be able to add more events to this soon.  Here’s the link if you’d like to subscribe: https://tinyletter.com/JosephineCorcoran

I look forward to welcoming back regular members and perhaps meeting new ones at either or both of our February meetings. 🙂
