Someone recently said, poetry is not meant to be read quietly, but to be listened to. So just like in the Dead Poets Society movie, I would like to meet with people who also love poetry, love to read it aloud, love to perform it, love to talk about it and love to write it. - Let's come together sharing poems and why they touch us the way they do.

Poetry Prompts

Every Monday morning, prompts are being sent out in hopes they trigger spontaneous poetic eruptions.

Poetry Between the Lines

Every 3rd Saturday of the month we come together for a deep dive into five poems of one chosen classic or contemporary poet.

Poet's Lounge

Leisurely get-together to talk about the poet's life under today's myriad distractions. (adhoc event)

Exploratory Poet

We schedule visits to museums, poetic places etc. randomly and write about what we’ve seen and experience afterwards (adhoc event)
