What do you hope to get from these meetings?

Feedback from others as well as an opportunity to offer up my own critiques.

What was the last poem (published/written in the last year) that you read? Where did you find it?

Currently reading new releases from Bob Hicok and Mary Oliver

Who is your favorite poet? Who is your favorite living poet?

changes daily. But probably Tony Hoagland

Verse or not to verse - that is the question - how do you feel about rhyme, meter and form?

it's like candy - a little won't hurt you but you can't live on it

Do you have a blog or website related to your writing you would like to share with the group? What is it?

It's not updated nearly often enough poetjamesescher.com


Hi, I'm Jim. I'm a poet, that is, I write poetry.
