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
NEW date, time and focus: 1st Tuesdays 8 pm Eastern
focusing on poems relating to climate change/environment
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 where we often post titles and authors and send an occasional reminder. You are welcome to join even if you just want to see the poems and aren’t planning on joining the zoom gathering.
Contact Mary Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
