Northampton Literature Group (NLG) is the only group in the county dedicated to wider consideration of the written word.
It encompasses three circles:
- Poetry Appreciation
Each explores some (not all) of the forms the written word can take and the various ways we can interact with them.
- The Poetry Appreciation Circle engages in group critiquing, reading aloud. It looks at published poets. While members are invited to bring along their own selections from published work, they do not present their own written poetry. For more details, go to NLG Circles.
- The Reading Circle investigates the published novel through solitary reading, group discussion and critiquing. Members read one book a month. For more details, go to NLG Circles.
- The Writing Circle follows solitary writing, group writing and critiquing, exploration of literary forms and genres. Writing assignments are given at each meeting for presentation at the next. For more details, go to NLG Circles.
The NLG meets on Tuesdays of each month at the Quaker Meeting House, Wellington Street, Northampton, NN1 3AS. Go to calendar for more details.
A pay and display car park is situated next to the Meeting House.
Membership for all or any of the circles is £20 a year.
