The original name was going to be "The messy writer's group for the functionally nutty," but we don't all have to be messy, or nutty, or functional. We read, write and perform poetry. Sometimes it shoots, sometimes sits like dirt, sometimes resists like phlegm, or oozes, or sometimes it just rests above our heads- no matter. It's a product of "the great yellow rose in your brain" (that's Ginsberg). If you have ever said to yourself, after writing a whole bunch of words on a page, "Man I wish I could read this to someone besides my evil twin..." we want to hear them.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
