    Details

    Dove Cottage Poets is an informal poetry writing group that meets at the Wordsworth Trust on a monthly basis. Anyone who wishes to develop their poetry, or just enjoy shared reading and writing, whatever stage you are at, is very welcome to come and join us. We meet, with an awareness of Wordsworth's heritage, to continue the tradition of creating poetry in Town End. Each month we either have a member-led session on a particular theme or technique, or we bring new poems that we have discovered and enjoyed to share with each other. We also read and discuss new poems written by members of the group, so do bring extra copies of something you are working on if you would like to. Tea and coffee will be available.

    For further information about a specific date or to be added to the group email list, please contact Alice Carthy on 015394 35544 or enquiries@wordsworth.org.uk.

    Full disabled access is available to the Wordsworth Museum. As Dove Cottage is an historic building, we have been unable to make provision for disabled access. However most wheelchairs will find the ground floor accessible and there is a virtual tour of the cottage available at the information point in the Wordsworth Museum.
