Zig Zag Stanza is part of The Poetry Society’s network of Stanza groups, and it is specifically dedicated to reading, writing and workshopping poems for children. We meet on Zoom on the third Monday of the month, 7.30-9.30pm. Anyone interested in writing for children is warmly welcome to join, you don’t have to be a Poetry Society member - though they are a wonderful organisation!
