Chris Huck has a PASSION for poetry. Combining that passion with an extensive knowledge, incredible artefacts and the team work of other authors creates magical adventures the first Saturday of the month in a little room on the Huddersfield University campus. I’ll let him tell you all about it:
Holmfirth Writers Group runs an Open Poetry Day every month. This comprises of a session where we study a particular poet or group of poets; these have included, Sappho, Emily Dickinson, The Metaphysical Poets, William Blake, the Imagists and Sylvia Plath. Most recently we looked at Christina Rossetti’s poem, Goblin Market http://www.victorianweb.org/authors/crossetti/marketov.html
After coffee we write till lunch time. After lunch we have a review period where we read and discuss poems brought in by those attending (bring 10 copies), please note that we only use constructive criticism.
We begin at 9.30 with a break for lunch at midday and we finish around 3pm. Tea and coffee are free. The venue is Huddersfield University room HWG 07 just beyond the main entrance, ask at the desk. Parking is free, just say ‘Poetry Day’ at the barrier. The cost is £12 waged £8 concessions, which pays for the room.
This is a stimulating day for anyone with an interest in poetry and the Holmfirth Writers, who are the core group, are bright and friendly. Please leave a comment, if you’d like more information.
