Three of the members of the Groningen Poetry Stanza will read their poetry during ‘Dichters in de Prinsentuin’, the annual poetry festival in Groningen (July 8,9 & 10). Just like last year, the festival will be in Hortus Botanicus in Haren. Ferdinand Lewis, Judith Wilkinson and Cecile Bol are part of the program. All three will read their work on Saturday the 9th of July as part of ‘Dichtbij’: unexpected and surprising poetry readings between the trees, shrubs and flowers. What a setting! Furthermore, Judith will take the stage a few more times. Check out the program of ‘Dichters in de Prinsentuin’ for more information: https://noordwoord.nl/dichtersindeprinsentuin/
Sunday the 30th of January through Friday the 25th of February the walls of Literary Café De Graanrepubliek in Groningen will be filled with poetry by several poets of the Groningen Poetry Stanza. The exhibition is a great opportunity to enjoy English poetry written in the Groningen area. Maybe it will even inspire you to join us sometime with your own work? You can find Literary Café De Graanrepubliek at Gedempte Kattendiep 11 in Groningen.
Do you write poetry in English? Or love reading (and talking about) English poetry by others? Or both? Pick some poetry to share and discuss and join us! Everybody is welcome! If you are new to the group, just drop us a line and we’ll invite you for the online meeting: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Groningen Poetry Stanza is proud to congratulate our member Judith Wilkinson with her new poetry collection In Desert, published by Shoestring Press. Please join us on the evening of Thursday the 4th of November to celebrate her creative milestone. Judith will read poetry from her new collection and of course it will be possible to buy a copy. Several other members of our poetry group will also read some of their work. A perfect opportunity to enjoy English poetry written in the Groningen area!
