LitFest announces First Friday "Pass On A Poem" event
A LitFest-organised event next nonth will offer Lancastrians the chance to share a poem that means something to them in a friendly and relaxed environment...
Pass on a Poem, a national initiative, aims to entertain and to create enthusiasm for poetry. It brings people together to read out loud poems which have a special personal significance and to explain, briefly, why.
Pass on a Poem readings open and reopen people's eyes, ears and hearts to the power of poetry, and to the experiences, feelings and thoughts of others. A remarkable range of subject matter, style and form emerges from the poems chosen. People of all backgrounds and ages take part.
No previous experience of reading out loud is necessary. Anybody is welcome to submit a poem they would like to share. Or you can simply come and enjoy the range of poetry on offer.
