What are 10 of your favorite descriptive words?

The winter evening settles down/ With smell of steaks in passageways./ Six o'clock./ The burnt-out ends of smoky days/...etc (for example)

Why is it important to you to find a group of poets to share and work with as opposed to just writing on your own?

1. Other poetry reader/writers - practitioners - make respected critics. 2. I like poetry read aloud to me, and mine to others. It's civilised and fun. 3. A group of strangers engaged on this same mysterious, minority activity - then going their separate ways into the night - that's good narrative poetry . 4. A meeting next week is often the only thing that makes me finish something.

What Malcolm J. is saying about this Meetup Group

It's good to find a group set up to explore the ancient, mysterious and central art of poetry, and with a range of great ideas to let each one of us get whatever s/he most wants out of a structured evening's listening, writing and reading (chanting? singing? performing? illustrating?).
