What we're about

Someone recently said, poetry is not meant to be read quietly, but to be listened to. So just like in the Dead Poets Society movie, I would like to meet with people who also love poetry, love to read it aloud, love to perform it, love to talk about it and love to write it. - Let's come together sharing poems and why they touch us the way they do.
