Poetry is the method of our future community is a series of fortnightly sessions where friends and members of IPCS, across all levels of poetry writing experience, find in our Reading Room a space for self-expression, discovery, community, and the imagination of our future.

Join Thabani Tshuma and others to work with poetry — your own, or that contained in the many books part of the Martin Harrison Poetry Collection. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are limited to 12 participants in the Reading Room. If you would like to join, please send a brief expression of interest to Thabani Tshuma and Carlos Morreo.
