Jerwood Centre
2.30 - 4.30pm

Dove Cottage Poets is an informal poetry writing group that meets at the Wordsworth Trust on a monthly basis. Anyone who wishes to develop their poetry, or just enjoy shared reading and writing, whatever stage you are at, is very welcome to come and join us.

We meet, with an awareness of Wordsworth’s heritage, to continue the tradition of creating poetry in Town End.  Each month we either have a member-led session on a particular theme or technique, or we bring new poems that we have discovered and enjoyed to share with each other.  We also read and discuss new poems written by members of the group, so do bring extra copies of something you are working on if you would like to.

Tea and coffee will be available.
