Maybe we should get a group to go to 3 friends coffeehouse and read our poetry... I have read mine before at an open mic and it's not that scary.  It's nice when people can appreciate your poetry.   Lavell

Peace,

I read somewhere that in the seventies they did a study and found that 29 percent of those surveyed had read a poem in the last week. The same survey was done last year and found five percent.  I have never read my poetry at an open mike. I keep thinking I'll go to the next one at Star E Rose cafe, but so far I haven't made it. I know of a certain that there is a poetry group that meets and reads at the Vancouver Library on Mill Plain and Fort Vancouver way. I saw the other day there was writing and reading poetry going on one night a month at Barnes and Noble on 4th Plain.  Those are the ones I know of, but I haven't had the courage to go yet. Debra

Poets,
 
I'm relatively new to Portland.  Absolutely virgin to the act of performing Poetry... but as my writing frequency and intensity increase i find myself searching for Poetry Open Mics and Poetry Readings in and around Portland.  That said, I submit my fear to this group:
 
Is Poetry dead?
 
Is Poetry in Portland Non-Existent?  Are there current venues that i just haven't found?
 
 
 
.... where does one spark the flint to begin the fire?
 
 
Any input would be appreciated...

Subject: [poetry-523] New Meetup: Autumn Poems

Announcing a new Meetup for Poems & Coffee Meetup!

What: Autumn Poems

When: Sunday, October 3,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Panera Bread
4121 NE Halsey St.
Portland, OR 97232
[masked]

Greetings everybody!! It has been quite a while since I have scheduled a P&C meetup. This summer was met with family health issues and it was not a good time to focus on poetry. But things have gotten better and I want to invite all of the regulars and new people back to this meetup.

Obviously, we have entered the autumn with cooler temps, rain, changes in lifestyle with school, new jobs, new opportunities, and new reflections. For this upcoming meetup, please write (2) 4 line 20 word poems about your personal goals, professional goals, or a vivid impression of autumn. Feel free to use any metaphor or simile within the constraints of this assignment.

Looking forward to visiting with you again!!

Best wishes,

Mark

P.S. We will also continue our creative exploration in group poetry or as it may sometimes be referred "group therapy!"

Well now I got to take Rex for a run round the clock, and fire off the steam engines, and lay open the thermostats to dry out in the weather, and fly a kite and put out the cat and bathe the canary and punish the children and sell the estate and wheel Uncle Ray back into his closet. -- Thomas Merton
