What is Poetry?

“Write a poem — any poem!”

At Dancing Catfish we do just that. We know that poems come in all shapes and sizes, all sorts of moods, up and down (and sideways), and we get together for a full evening each week to share what we are doing, and help one another figure out what will make our poems bounce, tap dance and sing (if that’s what they want to do), or change the world (if they can). Under the guidance of prize-winning poet Peter Anderson, we aim to figure out together how to make each poem as strong and effective as it can be. Which is exactly what our poems want us to do.
