The totally relaxed Poetry Reading Group meets on the last Tuesday of the month. A delightful way to spend your lunchtime – reading from poetry books with others and chatting about it. No knowledge of poetry is necessary – just a spirit of curiosity and adventure! Bring poetry to read, if you like.

If not, you can either just listen or pick a poem at random to read from anthologies available at the meetings.
Open to all over the age of 18, this group is run in collaboration between the University’s Centre for Wellbeing and the Department of English.
