Do you like poetry and want to talk about it with others, but when you do that in your daily life, people's attention starts wandering? Yeah, me too. Here's your chance. Most of our members write poetry and share it, but some of us (like me) simply love it and share poems written by others. We're an informal, friendly group, and our conversations are not focused on critical workshop-type feedback. Instead, you read the poem you brought and then we talk about it, what we like, what moves us, or we puzzle through it together if we aren't sure about some aspect. We meet in my home in NW Austin and we aren't snooty about any of it, we just love poetry.

We're 176 poetry lovers

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
