• About Us
We are poets who meet each week to read great poems, to get inspired and to share our work. We alternate leadership from week to week, each of us bringing different topics, authors, poetry forms and approaches into the mix, stimulating ongoing discussions. We want to write MORE poems, better poems, and get those poems on the stage and into publications.

• What we'll do
Al will host this week's special session: Share and Inspire. Every 4th Tuesday, we invite participants to bring a recent (or not so recent) poem or other short writing to share with the group, any topic or style. Our sharing may serve as a basis for some impromptu writing (time permitting). This is an opportunity to support and be supported by other writers. Bring something you wrote or something you love by another author, something to inspire.

• What to bring – Pen and paper or device for the writing exercise.

• Important to know – We provide a supportive community for poets of all styles and skill levels.
