June meeting

Submitted by Poetry Aloud on Thu, 30/06/2016 - 13:38
Once again we had a select group of poets in June. We did welcome Bonnie, who has recently moved to Bury from Stockholm. She is a poet, but didn't want to offer any Swedish poems this time. George also joined us again, and has obviously caught the poetry bug because he said he wants to learn to write in new forms.

Poetry Aloud Website mission statement

This website has the same philosophy as the poetry reading group with which it is associated — to provide local poets with a sympathetic platform from which to read (or in this case narrowcast) their work.

Poetry Aloud - Next meeting and AGM Tuesday 26th July

This is a reminder that the next Poetry Aloud is Tuesday 26th July, and as it will include the AGM it will start earlier than usual at 7.00pm.
The AGM will include officers’ reports (chair, treasurer), appointment of officers (reminder that Sally is stepping down from being treasurer and we are on the lookout for a volunteer,) proposals for the coming year, and any suggestions from the floor.

It is intended that the AGM will be finished by 7.25pm, to allow us to start the meeting proper at 7.30pm.

Our featured reader this month will be Ian Speed.

Brandon - Travellers' Tales workshop

Here is an opportunity to join a workshop in Brandon Library with Melinda Appleby on the 25th July.

There will be a Ferry Tales celebration in Brandon on the 28th September, and this workshop feeds into it. The workshop and celebration are being developed in conjunction with SPS, but you do not need to be a member.

The workshop will be to develop poems and writings on Brandon's history. See the attached flyer for more information and contact details.

The workshop only costs £10.

A new look!

Welcome to our updated website. The code we have been using since 2008 has long been falling into obsolescence, and is now finally obsolete. We have upgraded to the latest (having skipped a generation of code) and we hope you like the result.

This new version will work better on mobile devices of all sizes. It is also more secure for us all.

Most importantly, all of the poems are still here, accessed in the archive from the right-hand menu or the tabs on the top menu.
