Meetings take place on the 4th Tuesday of every month, starting at 7pm and finishing at 9.00 pm. The venue is Little 15, 17 – 19 Wallgate, Wigan, WN1 1LL, telephone number 01942 824607.

The agenda is:

1) Update (approx. 10 minutes) – members share news on poetry events, competitions, periodicals etc.

2) Discussion Item (approx. 25 minutes) – members will take it in turns to share a poem / idea / article / response

3) Writing Activity (approx. 25 minutes) – members will take it in turns to provide a stimulus item or activity to trigger writing. This may provide the opportunity for work to be developed to share at the following month’s meeting.

4) Sharing Work (approx. 60 minutes) – members will have the opportunity to read their work and receive feedback.

The agenda for meetings is very much a work in progress and members are encouraged to suggest ideas. What we take from the meetings will be in proportion to our contribution: if it ain’t working, it’s up to us to fix it!
