Roscommon Poets – and lovers of poetry – are invited to participate in POETRY IN THE PARK 2023.
Poetry in the Park is an opportunity for poets and lovers of poetry to meet, to share their favourite poems, and to socialise. There will be a short walk, with stops along the way for the reading of poems. Immediately after the walk (which will be about an hour), we will take up residence at the Lough Key Tearooms for refreshments (at your expense), perhaps some more poetry, and plenty of chat.
You can bring along a poem that you have written, you can bring along a poem you love, or you can come along with no poems in tow and simply enjoy the walk, the poems, and the chat. Nature poems are particularly welcome, but if your favourite poem is about a grandfather clock, or a mother’s love, or about anything at all, really, that’s fine, as long as it’s suitable for sharing among young and old!
Due to the unpredictability of the weather, Poetry in the Park 2023 will take place when the forecast guarantees a rain-free day.
All walks will take place in Lough Key Forest & Activity Park. Meeting point will be at the Visitor Centre and starting time will be 2pm, unless otherwise advised. Walks will always be on a weekend.
Register interest to join by phone [087- 6397557] or by email [email@example.com]. Gerry will add you to a Poetry in the Park WhatsApp group and this is how you’ll be notified of upcoming walks. If for any reason you don’t wish to be part of a WhatsApp group, Gerry can advise you of upcoming walks either by text, or email, or both.
