POETRY MEETING (article first published : 2000-05-17)

With its founder Ursula Cox moving away from Durban, the Live Poets Society found itself without a leader and without a venue. However, Jillian Hamilton came to the rescue and she is now running the group which meets fortnightly with the next meeting on May 18 at 19h30 at 112 Bowhill Lodge, 16 Gordon Road, Morningside. “If you’d like to attend, please bring along your work to read and include something that you wrote some time in the dim and distant past, as well as something newly penned and we'll have an evening of reading and listening to the group's work,” says Jill. “If you really don't write, why not bring an early and later work of your favourite poet?”

Suggestions are also invited for a new name for the group. Local photographer Rodney Bathfield has come up with the suggestion of "The Poet Tasters", which was the name given to developing poets by established poets in Byron's time. More details from Jill on (031) 303-4929 or e-mail: blackelk@mweb.co.za

The future venue for the society is expected to be the Hoy Park complex with meetings being held at 19h30 on Thursday evenings.
