     It was great, just was uncomfortable with the program comparing it ALLOT with church. That's just my personal opinion.....

     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.

     Soon there will be no space for these events. Once a person with like minds visit, it is an "never wanna miss it again" experience. NO age limit, all ages, all generations, like minds. Everyone totally respectful, lots of love, I just love it..

  • Poetry & Spoken Word

     This is a very welcoming group. There are both beginners and experienced poets. There are also poetry supporters who just come to listen and cheer us on. It is a terrific space and the hostess, Carmen is so gracious and makes us all feel at home! Light refreshments, friendly conversation. A great way to meet new people, as well! I have been coming here for years and truly love it! Thank you to Carmen!

  • Poetry & Spoken Word

     Great was my first time and I loved the respect everyone shows for each other and their poetry no matter what the topic of a poem or content. You truly get to express yourself as a poet.

  • Poetry & Spoken Word

     i though the number of people was perfect and felt very comfortable reciting my poem. 

    philip m. on Mar 19, 2012.

  • Poetry & Spoken Word

     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.

     Others should join this group because it represents what i think meet up.com is about.....opportunity to meet new people, have new experiences, and also have fun.

  • Poetry & Spoken Word

     If you're into seeing whats really inside a person and what they're all about, if you're interested in looking deep into a person's being and not just the superficial shell, then this is the place to be.
