Our typical meetup is a Poetry Circle Meetup:
Poetry Circle Meetups are basically just that, we sit in a circle of chairs and each person gets a turn reading their poetry and then we discuss your poetry and provide feedback.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own poetry for reading, to present it in whatever fashion you desire, and if you feel uncomfortable reading aloud then someone else can read your poetry for you.
So bring your poetry. Feel free to bring extra copies that can be passed around.
Invite your poetry writing friends.
Expect to be entertained by the wide breadth of poets we have in Toronto.
Meetings last typically 90 minutes or more, depending on how many people come to the meetup. So if you show up 30 minutes late you can still present your poetry to the group for commentary.
