Shortlands Poetry Circle

Reading which includes poetry

Usually starts at 2:30 pm
and finishes at 4:30 pm

A great way of sharing poetry. Small friendly membership - visitors welcome. We read two poems, one may be long (but no more than 3 minutes) and the other must be short (closer to sonnet length) on the pre-scheduled theme or by the scheduled poets.
