Stairwell at Manchester Buddhist Centre

The Centre’s small and friendly poetry group, led by Edmund Prestwich — all welcome. A free event, no need to book. This month we’re looking at Michael Longley in the last six years, focussing on poems from Angel Hill, The Stairwell and A Hundred Doors. Please bring copies of these poems, and any of Longley’s books if you have them:

Angel Hill: Inglenook, Snowdrops, Fifty Years
The Stairwell: Waterbirds, Lizard Orchid, Boy-Soldier, Ronald Colman
A Hundred Doors: Proofs, Horseshoe, The Leveret, Puff-Ball, Cloudberries

Edmund’s website carries full information on finding copies of the poems to be discussed.

Monthly Poetry Discussion

We usually, but not always, get together on the second Saturday of the month to discuss a poet and their work, usually, but not always, a modern one. We sometimes take a break in the summer and at other holiday times. Keep an eye on What’s On for details. It's always safest to check the website before setting off in case the details have changed

Creative Writing at the Buddhist Centre

Various writing groups come and go at the Centre, organised by their own members - keep an eye on the notice board on the ground floor. There are occasional one-off creative writing events here too - check What's On.
