Poets Corner skinner

WHO ARE WE


Poets’ Corner is a program of the Sacred and Creative section of the Effective Living Centre. It began in 2003 following the visit of Professor Mark Burrows, who fired our imagination with his exploration of poetry.

 

WHAT DO WE DO


At each of our bi-monthly meetings we have a guest poet, and members are also encouraged to read their own poems. Our group is made up of published poets, new poets and possible future poets. As writers, hearers or readers, we participate in the imaginative and creative process and deepen our insight and sensitivity to the world and our human condition.

Through poetry, with its exploration of the sacred, our lives are enhanced and nurtured. In 2010 Poets Corner published an anthology Season of the New Heart, and in 2020 a second anthology From our Desks.
