Helen Jagger The poetry group meets on the second Saturday of each month. It is designed for those who enjoy reading poetry (but are perhaps rather puzzled or even hostile to much contemporary poetry) and welcome the chance to discuss modern poetry within a group. The sessions try to take our understanding of poetry deeper by encouraging writing in response to specific poems' themes and poetic techniques.

Helen Jagger is a poet, and teacher of poetry writing whose work has been published in magazines in the UK, US and Australia. She runs weekly poetry workshops as well as the Poetry Society's North Cornwall Stanza and was poet in residence at Pencarrow from 2010 - 2012. She is currently working with the Falmouth Poetry Group on a new poetry festival: for 28-29 June, 2014. She founded and ran the Indian King Arts Centre in Camelford for ten years, after (very) early retirement from her post as Head of English at Sir James Smith's School, Camelford. She graduated in English literature from Cambridge University in 1979.
