“To read a poem is to hear it with our eyes; to hear it is to see it with our ears."
We are thinking of setting up a group that meets monthly to read poems aloud, as poems are meant to be read. The idea is that each month, over a glass of wine and nibbles, we can get together to listen to fellow parishioners reading poems; reading any yourself is optional. Our first meeting will be at 8:00pm in the Haydock Community Centre on Monday, 16 May. Anyone who comes should bring along 3-5 of their favourite poems to this first meeting; we can also discuss how the group could develop further.
If you are interested in the idea, please let Neil McGeown know that you will be coming 01768 398808 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
