We are a stanza, affiliated to the Poetry Society.
Membership is free.
We have an active membership of around twenty and another twenty or so who keep in touch. There is a wide range within the group, from complete beginner to experienced poet. Our backgrounds are equally varied. We meet once a month, at 116 Southfield Road, Oxford, OX4 1PA, to discuss each other’s work, hear presentations from members and readings from guest poets. Next meeting: 7.45pm, Monday 2nd October.
We are always delighted to welcome new members, so if you like what you see and would like to join, don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Coming up soon…
Dorothy Yamamoto and Sarah J Bryson will be giving their next workshop, “Terra firma, or all at sea?” at Kirtlington Village Hall on Sunday 15th October from 10.00 to 15.30. Everyone welcome; cost £25. For more information go here
The Formalities: Guidelines for Contributors
The moderators of this site reserve the right to delete any comments, but will always explain the reason why … We have never had to do this and we don’t for a moment imagine that it will ever be necessary, but, for reasons of liability, it needs to be said.
We’ll do our best to approve comments as soon as possible after they’ve been posted.
To post a poem, start a discussion or comment on someone else’s poem, you’ll need to type or paste your text into the Add a comment box on the relevant page.
Beneath the comment box, there’s space to identify yourself with your real name or a pseudonym, a valid e-mail address and, if you like, your website address. (Your e-mail address remains private and only the site administrator(s) can see it.)
There are three registration options: as a Guest, through your WordPress account, or via Facebook.
If you’d like to be notified when someone adds a new comment or replies to yours, tick the boxes.
All comments have to be approved by a moderator, so it may take a little while before your comment or poem appears. Please be patient!
