Poems in the Waiting Room is a voluntary organisation producing free handouts of poetry for people to read while they are waiting to see the doctor.
The movement started in the UK. Read the link to find out more of the history:
The summer issue of the Dunedin/Otago Poems in the Waiting Room has arrived in the world.
Must get in touch with the organisers and offer them another Janet Frame poem for a future issue. They included Frame's "The Icicles" in the winter issue of 2009.
The poems on the brochures are by a mix of old and new poets, well-known and emerging, local and international. All poems are carefully chosen for those sometimes tense uncomfortable waiting times.
