This is a very informal, very friendly group of people who want to write for many varied reasons. Each meeting begins with a writing exercise which explores some aspect of writing. The group then share the output from this. This exercise may then be used as a starting point for new work. During the second part of the evening, members of the group share whatever project they are working on at the moment. This gives them the opportunity to present their work to a wider audience.

Last Thursday Poetry Evenings

Poetry evenings are held during the winter on the last Thursday of the month at 7.30pm at Taigh Chearasabhagh, Lochmaddy.  Each month we have a special guest poet, read poems on a particular theme or read the poems of an individual poet.

Anyone is welcome to come to these very informal poetry evenings. You might like to read poems on this month’s theme, or just come to enjoy listening to poems being read aloud. It’s an opportunity to relax with a glass of wine and enjoy fine poetry, in good company.
