CUUWA and Vancouver Unitarians host several gatherings each week for you to drop in and hear a poem by a Canadian (usually) woman poet. Current dates are:
Saturday and Sunday 12 noon Eastern
Monday 7 pm Eastern
The zoom link is sponsored by Vancouver Unitarians. A few minutes in advance just follow the shortlink ucv.im/cuuwa
The facilitator for the day, reads the selected poem three times, with a minute of silence and brief sharing in between each reading. It’s usually a small group of 4 to 5 and so it’s a nice “break” in your day –taking about 15 to 20 minutes and never more than 30. On occasion if it’s a long poem, we read it only twice.
We also have a googlegroup and SLACK workspace where we often post titles and authors and send an occasional reminder.
Contact Mary Bennett at email@example.com if you want more details.
Updates are often posted at vancouverunitarians.ca – Just search for “poetry” or “CUUWA”.
No obligation to be a poem reader. Many of us who are reading consider it a rare privilege to be able to read aloud a favorite poem to attentive listeners.
I, Mary, recently got to read two of Amanda Gorman’s poems. What a treat!
