Bards at Blidworth

Are you interested in a Poetry Group that meets in Nottinghamshire? On my AA map Blidworth is underneath the word 'Sherwood', as in Sherwood Forest. This group would love to see some of you at their meetings.

Bards at Blidworth meets every third Saturday of the month at Blidworth Library.

Telephone: 01623 794068
E-mail: blidworth.library@nottscc.gov.uk

We meet from 10.00 am – 12.00 pm.

We are a small, friendly group of poets (and sometimes listeners!). At meetings we have readarounds so that round the circle we can hear each other read one of their poems and invite feedback if they want it. Those that would like feedback are advised to bring copies of the poem they would like feedback on.

On alternate meetings we have workshops with the aim of producing a poem or draft of a poem at the time followed by a readaround. We look to having the occasional visiting speakers. We have so far run one national poetry competition and will do so again. We are starting to collect poems for a publication 'Bards at Blidworth and Beyond'.
