The Lodge at Undercliffe saw the very first gathering of the Undercliffe Alive! Poets Society. Created by our Registrar and Coordinator Andy Manning with author, performer Irene Lofthouse the idea is to encourage poets and writers to share their work in a unique setting.
There was an opportunity for a tour of the Cemetery before the poetry got underway, but sadly the weather was too wet. Hopefully we’ll have better luck next time!
It was a great success, with a packed room and many different styles of poetry and flash fiction read to an appreciative audience. Some of the poems and prose will be available on our website very soon.
It is a chance to meet other poets, read, listen and learn in a friendly supportive positive atmosphere. Everybody is welcome, whether you an experienced poet or a nervous first time it doesn’t matter. It was collaborative
