We meet on the last Monday evening of the month at 7.30pm in the upper room of the Christian Centre by St Martin's Church, Dorking RH4 1DW. At our last meeting on July 28th we enjoyed an illuminating talk on poetry and mysticism, as well as our usual workshops of up to four of our own poems. Our next routine meeting will include a talk intriguingly entitled 'Siftings' on September 29th. On August 9th we held a stimulating Summer School, open to the public, at the Christian Centre, Dorking. We are also planning two public events for the autumn: our annual Sofa Poet event will feature Jane Draycott and will be on 20th September in the Christian Centre, Dorking at 2pm. Entry £12 (concessions £10). The annual Poetry Pub will be on 6th October at the Stepping Stones pub in Westhumble as part of the Mole Valley Arts Alive Festival. Entry £5, readers welcome, start time 7.30pm.
