What we're about

"Breathe in experience, breathe out poetry." -Muriel Kukeyser

Let's get together to share our own poetry in an inclusive and supportive environment! We will listen and offer constructive feedback after the poet has read her or his work. At the end of each meetup, we will decide a prompt for the next meeting, for those who need it. Work can be shared unrelated to the prompt. All skill levels are welcome!

Poetry Workshop

Panera Bread

For each meetup, we will workshop poems written by each attendee. You can bring any poem of yours to share. This Meeting's Prompt: Write a shape poem. "Concrete poetry—sometimes also called 'shape poetry'—is poetry whose visual appearance matches the topic of the poem." Some examples: https://www.pinterest.com/louisesulack/shape-poems/. All skill levels are welcome! You are welcome to use the prompt but it isn't required. If you are able, bring copies of your poem for sharing, as it will be easier for the group to provide you feedback. To find us, look for the red balloon! Workshop purpose and agenda: Cincinnati East Poetry Group shares our own poetry in an inclusive and supportive environment. We listen and offer constructive feedback after the poet has read her or his work. And if we have time, we write together. We usually take the first 10 to 15 minutes to get food and to catch up. At the end of each meetup, we will decide a prompt for the next meeting. Note on Meeting Days: We meet on the last Wednesday of the month at the Panera Bread in Hyde Park Plaza. Hope you can join us! Happy writing!
