Poem banner 250x900

Friday bi-monthly, 7-9pm at Sprout Arts

Upcoming 2023 dates: Friday March 3 | May 5 | July 7 | Sept 1 | Nov 3 

Do you have a favourite poem? 

 

Poetry At Sprout (PAS) meets every two months at 7.00pm on Friday evenings at Sprout Arts, we also open the sessions on Zoom, so you can join us whereever you are.
Previously called Pass-on-a-poem the idea is to bring a favourite poem - by someone else not your own poetry - to our friendly group and be amazed! If there is time, after an interval we'll read any further poems that people have brought, so bring a spare. Please let us know the title and author of your first poem a couple of days ahead so we can draw up an initial running order.

“We don’t read poems because, like bran flakes, they’re good for us; we read them because we love them – and if you haven’t found a poem you really love, keep looking and I am sure you will.” Erica Wagner
