What we're about

The aim of this meetup is to provide a place for poets to share their work and receive feedback from other poets. This will be a biweekly workshop held in a bar or cafe in Portland's eastside. We are hoping to keep this a more intimate group size of ten or less poets per meeting so that enough time and attention is given to each piece. Poets of any background or experience level are welcome.
