The Lexington Poetry Group (“Poezia”) Meet­up is a poetry workshop. The primary purpose is to offer constructive criticism regarding the elements of craft in each poem. Each member should bring copies of their poem. We also spend time on generative writing, craft exercises, and reading poems from nationally known poets. Members of all experience levels are welcome.  This is a welcoming group, and it’s a great group if you are just starting out, hit writer’s block, or if you are working on a manuscript. Members range from beginning writers to published poets.  The Meet­up is co­organized and co­hosted by Katie Riley and Kimberly Miller, two poets who hold Masters of Fine Arts in Poetry.

We love new members! And we love visitors!  We meet every Thursday at 7pm at Common Grounds Coffee Shop in the back room. Common Grounds is located at 343 E High St., Lexington, KY. We hope to see you there!

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.
