Poetry Workshop Meetup

Everyone of all levels is welcome. Bring a few short poems to workshop if you want to discuss them. Either way come prepared to dig in.

The completely optional prompt for each week can be found in the comments below.

Hope to see you there.

 

This meetup meets every other week.

Email me or leave a comment if  you know of any cool poetry events that you think we should try to go to, you'd like to volunteer to come up with the prompt, or if you'd like to volunteer to pick a published poem to share.

    Hi Everyone, Thanks for your kind comments and great company tonight. Catherine and I have spoken earlier about perhaps doing a poetry slam together. There are some groups in town, and we could certainly go to those. I go to a very liberal church on Girard that has a stage. I've spoken with the pastor, and she is very excited about the idea of perhaps holding a slam there. I also spoke to Lori after tonight's get together, and she said a weekend in July or Thursday night would be good for her. Is there any interest among you all for this? I know you might be reluctant to go to a church for a poetry slam, but I can assure you that there will be no proselytizing. This is a very open church in terms of its political stances. My reason for wanting to have a slam there is that it has a stage. Were we to establish ourselves there, I could even see expanding the use of that stage to include plays, either original or avant-garde. Please let me know if you're open to the idea of doing this, and any dates and days that

      Charles, you rock for moving forward on this. I haven't. Been able to get myself moving to take things to the next level and I'm so appreciating your initiative. The only weekend in July I am available is the 13th. There should be more Thursdays that I am free. What an awesome idea.

      The 13th is good for me... I would be happy to pencil this in if it sounds good to everyone... then I can begin rounding up pieces of my work I like and start getting nervous about the whole thing... LOL

      Sorry we missed you! And just in case this was an issue, please never feel like you need copies or any poems at all to come. (Although I do understand when it doesn't feel like you'll get what you want out of the experience and wait for a more optimal time, its all good)

    A request:
    the last time I was there, we sat next to the door with people bumping into me as the came and went. If possible, a table to ourselves away from traffic would be nice. sincere thanks

    Completely optional prompt: focus on grammar. Can you get something interesting changing the punctuation or the verb tense or by using an unexpected article?
