Kirkwall Poetry Reading Group

The Kirkwall Poetry Reading Group meets between 1.00pm and 2.00pm in the Carnegie Room on the second Wednesday of every month. Supporters bring along poems on a specific theme to read out, share and discuss. You're also welcome to come along and just listen to the poems others have chosen. Poems should be by other poets and not ones you have written yourself. If you enjoy poetry and like the sound of what the group does then do come along and be assured of a warm welcome. The themes for December are friendship and marriage/relationships.
