I’m not sure yet whether this is the name by which our group will be known, but basically we are members of the Poetry Society with
TS, DL and DH postcodes. This evening, 31 March, marked our second meeting as a group and I have to say that I’d forgotten how enjoyable it can be meeting with like-minded people simply to discuss poetry and poems in an informal setting.
Poetry, especially poetry-writing can be quite a lonely activity, sometimes you can be so close to your own work as not to be able to cast a good critical eye over it. Even more remarkably sometimes there are threads and sub-texts in your work that you didn’t know were there until someone else told you.
