Poems that Pack a Punch
with Kate McDonnell, Get Into Reading Project Manager
17th June, Liverpool

Poetry has a way of taking life by the throat. - Robert Frost

Roll your sleeves up and come with The Reader Organisation as we grapple with poems dealing with some of life's big issues: Love, Suffering, Selfhood, the search for Happiness...

This session will build your confidence in reading poetry with a group, as well as providing the opportunity to explore some of these issues on a personal level, in a safe environment.

This is the only place I can talk about things that really matter

This is what a Get Into Reading group member once said after a particularly memorable poetry session, and if indeed, as Robert Frost reckoned, that ‘poetry has a way of taking life by the throat', it's clearly a very useful thing to have on your side...

Kate McDonnell is Manager of The Reader Organisation's Get Into Reading project on Merseyside and her talent both as a group facilitator and reader of poetry is appreciated by her colleagues and group members alike.
