Event description

Description

Be part of a new kind of reading group: like a book club but without the homework! Have you wanted to join a reading group but never had the time to do the reading beforehand?

Join acclaimed poet and widely experienced tutor Mahendra Solanki for weekly meetings to hear and discover stories and poems for pleasure. All you have to do is join in the discussion and there is no worrying about preparation as all the texts are presented during each session.

This friendly group will meet for 30 FREE sessions, beginning Tuesday 17 September 2019.

In collaboration with the Royal Literary Fund.

Mahendra Solanki is a poet, editor, psychotherapist and tutor. He directed and taught for many years on a long-established MA in Writing at Nottingham Trent University. He has been a writer in residence for many organisations in various settings, including the Arvon Foundation, the NHS and First Story. More recently he served as a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at the Universities of Warwick and Aston.

His writings have appeared in a wide range of magazines, journals and anthologies in Britain and abroad and broadcast by the BBC. His publications include What You Leave Behind (1996), The Lies We Tell (2014) published by Shoestring Press, and as editor, the best-selling Ten Poems about Home (2017) published by Candlestick Press.

30 FREE weekly sessions beginning Tuesday 17 September 2019, 6.30 - 8pm

Booking advised. For the group to develop, we strongly encourage weekly attendance if possible.
