"Anyone can live a life, but what have you said about it?"  Pessoa

Poetry writers group. All levels of experience. We workshop together once a month. Sometimes discuss contests and literary journals, schools, etc.

PLEASE NOTE: Most poets in this group are writing for print media. Due to time restrictions, we limit poetry brought to the meetup to relatively short poems that can be read in a few minutes. Generally this group does not meet the needs of spoken word poets, though spoken word poets are welcome to join. Please pardon our Spoken Word meetup tag; I am unable to remove it. **Nashville really needs a Spoken Word meetup if you are a Spoken Word poet and would be so kind as to host one!**

Members of this group publish some of their poetry at: http://nashvillepoetrywriters.wordpress.com...


The organizer (or assistant organizer) acts as moderator for this group, both online and during in-person workshops. We strive for a mix of supportive and ‘challenging’ feedback. Each person has his or her own style of providing feedback and his or her own tolerance for critique, so everyone should be cognizant regarding delivery of their feedback.

This group will not tolerate bullying, antagonism, negativity (biting criticism), rigorous/lengthy defense of work, or attempts to keep the focus on yourself (e.g, taking the group too far off topic). Violent or pornographic poetry is not right for this group. The organizer(s) reserve the right to censor any material (online or at a meeting) that is deemed inappropriate.
