Hello Poetry Lovers!
Our (always optional) prompt for this month is to write a poem from the point of view of the opposite gender. Have fun with this!
PLEASE NOTE TIME!!! Social Hour will begin at 7:00 p.m. with Poetry to begin promptly at 8:00 p.m. We’ll be meeting in South City at the home of Muffin. As this is a private residence the exact address will not be posted publicly on the site. Instead we will send the address via email on the day prior to the meeting to all members who RSVPed “YES”. Please get those RSVPs in as soon as possible so you will be sure of getting the directions. Otherwise you must email or phone me directly. If I have enough time, I’ll check up until I leave for the poetry meetup.
We will have our typical ‘Grazing Table’ set up, so feel free to bring a snack or beverage to share.
As always, the writing prompt is completely optional. If the assignment does not inspire you then please just bring whatever you’re currently working on, something old you haven’t read in a while, the work of another poet you enjoy, or just come to listen. We just want to hear and share poetry, so it’s all good!
At 4pm on Saturday December 15, 2012 we will be meeting at the home of Donna Witteried’s in Wildwood (I will decorate and have a nice wood-burning fire for us as well as some mulled wine). The prompt will be to start a poem with the line: “The family business is never finished…”. In January, we will be back in Dog Town at the home of Carol Haake writing either a sonnet or villanelle (I will post details of the form a little later). Lots to write! Enjoy!
