“ When people share their deep and intimate words within a group of unknown participants, it is a brave and couragious act. This group was close knit from the begining. There was a fluid motion of sharing poetry and the feedback consited of deep sighs, smiles, goose bumps, tears, clapping. I would attend this group again if I am in the area again and the timing is right. ”

— philip m. on Mar 19, 2012.
“ I recommend them highly. The participants ranged from children to old fogeys like me. Many times in poetry or reading circles, one can find personalities displayed that one would prefer to live without, or participants only there to read their work and not participate in the comraderie of sharing thoughts and feelings. There was none of that here. These were simply people who liked poetry and liked sharing and being around others who liked poetry, also. For those who like the same, I highly recommend this group. ”

“ I went to find lost soles to join the theater group "Hollywood Florida Theatrical Troupe" and found no one after a year of attending. Lots of stories of people who had everything and lost everything, live in tiny apartments now , eating humble pie, but no plan to better themselves or their community. Satisfying themselves with less, working for less, striving for a future of less. Lots of poems addressing civil rights, but then these same people do not support groups here and now, which are actively having those rights threatened and removed. ”
