An enclave!  :)  That sounds good.  I think meeting centrally is a
good goal.  I'm still inclined to try Genuine Joes just because we've
now tried a south place and a central one but not a north one.  Until
the perfect place is found, experimentation is in order...  If someone
knows of another -central- spot, we can try for that; I'll hold off on
setting the rsvp page to Genuine Joe's for a few days.  If no-one
does, then I'd vote we try Genuine Joe's.

I know that I myself am also likely every now and then to just chime
in and say "Hey, I'm going to be at Spider House this afternoon if
anyone wants to talk shop."  (I go there a lot.)  So I'd love to see
more spontaneous and small things happen too.

Well, at the least I'll bet we could chime in.  This group is open to
writers of all kinds, and we talk about writing and share our writing
for feedback & conversation.  Tips on promotion of a book of poetry
seem perfectly reasonable, though the tips may come from people who
may only be speculating on things to do to promote it, rather than
professional publishers or promoters.  Then again someone's career
experience might lie in that direction.
