We provide any poet who comes to our meetings with a sympathetic platform from which to read their work. We do not criticise or analyse but offer an encouraging ear.
There is, of course, a warm welcome for those who come along to listen.
If you cannot visit us at our regular meetings at The Bay Tree Cafe in St John's Street, Bury St Edmunds, at 7:30pm on the last Tuesday of each month (except December) then you will find us here at poetryaloud.org.uk.
What turned out to be a fortuitous mix up over venue meant a delayed start and late finish to the workshop, but Danni happily packed in as much as she could. She commenced by taking us through what we would like to achieve from the workshop and how to address the weaknesses we had identified.
