Poetry at SMSA 2019

Come along to our free discussion group for poetry lovers held on the second Tuesday of each month commencing at 6pm. Recite, listen to and discuss poems in an informal, friendly atmosphere. Half of each meeting is dedicated to a theme.

Offers to chair meetings are always welcome. So too are offers to lead discussion on a nominated poem. The only rule is that one can’t read one’s own poems.

Several times a year, several members of the Poetry at SMSA group give public readings of selected poetry which have proven very popular.

Members’ Group – Visitors Welcome

Group Coordinator: Peter Rainey
