Southwark Council is running a poetry reading group for local residents.
The Poetry and Wellbeing group, which has been going since 2018, is currently running on Zoom from 5-6pm on Tuesday evenings. The group has been online since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sessions include games, reading of established poets and writing prompts to help inspire people to create their own poems. Attendees can also share their own work with the group.
The council describes the group as “relaxed” and says it is “made up of all levels to share an interest in poetry”.
