The Red Wheelbarrow Poetry Group – more opportunities for poetry
“So much depends . . .”
The Red Wheelbarrow was launched in January 2021 with a view to providing opportunities for poets, and those who love poetry, to meet and read. Our aim is to provide an inclusive platform for poets from diverse traditions, and at different levels of experience.
We offer weekly Zoom readings every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Evenings consist of a reading by a featured poet, lasting for between 25-50 minutes, followed by a ten-minute break and an open-mic session, in which anyone who’s ‘tuned in’ to hear the featured poet would be welcome to read from their own poetry or from the work of another poet. Depending on the length of the open-mic session, we will probably wrap up at around 9:30 p.m. Your hosts will be the poets Jacques Coetzee, Melissa Sussens and Nondwe Mpuma.
We hope that you can join us in this adventure: we’re looking forward to providing poets with a vibrant space in which to share their poetry.
Yours in poetry,
Eduard Burle, Jacques Coetzee, Melissa Sussens, Nondwe Mpuma
