We are a mutually supportive group of enthusiastic poets who are committed to improving our writing skills and taking poetry into the local community. We have been meeting to encourage each other and share our work since 1999. In 2011 we became a stanza group of the Poetry Society, in order to reach more poets, benefit from a wider network of contacts and activities, and attract new members. Please see the guidelines for further information about the group.
Our annual programme includes twelve monthly meetings on the last Monday evening of the month at 7.30 p.m. currently held online in lieu of the Christian Centre by St Martin's Church, Dorking RH4 1DW. The evening is divided into two parts:
Events such as the Sofa Poet and Poetry Pub are open to all - do join us.
The annual subscription is £20.
If you would like to join the group, or require further information, please contact the Secretary.
Mole Valley Poets Annual Summer School Workshop: Water
Mole Valley Poets annual Summer School Workshop run by Helen Overell will be online again this year on Saturday 14th August from 2pm.
In this workshop we will explore poems written in response to the salt swirl of ocean tides, the steady flow of a river and the benison of rainfall and consider the ways in which water shapes our lives.
There will be writing exercises, both individual and collaborative, so as to put the beginnings of poems down on the page.
Joining the event will be easy, with Zoom invitations issued to your email address. Tickets are £8 for an afternoon of expert poetry and writing tutelage.
Tickets are available from Mole Valley Poets Summer School Workshop: Water
