• Living Poetry Virtual Workshop
    What is this Living Poetry Virtual Workshop meetup? This meetup is a reminder to join the Living Poetry Virtual Workshop (LPVW). We created the Virtual Workshop in response to several requests from members who desired more frequent and rapid feedback than the face-to-face workshops are able to provide. And, because this is virtual, it is available whenever and wherever one has access to email. The LPVW is an internet mailing list. When you send an email to the workshop address all the other members of the mailing list receive the email. While you are not required to reply to each emailed poem, if you submit poems for review, please return the courtesy and provide feedback to others. Mutual exchange makes this a vibrant and lively virtual community. How do I join the Virtual Workshop? Simply RSVP to this meetup. We'll add you to the mailing list. How do I submit a poem for feedback? Send your poem in an email to [masked]. How do I provide feedback on a submitted poem? After receiving a submitted poem, reply to the email with your feedback. Please reply promptly. We suggest within a week of submission. By default, your email will be sent to everyone on the list. If you feel the need to email the poet directly, you will need to modify the "to:" address. Regarding our feedback, we can provide suggestions for change or ask questions about the overall message of the poem if it is lost on us but be aware that the lost message has as much to do with us as the reader as it has to do with the poem. Take enough time to review them so you can get a sense for their meaning and flow. Highlight which lines or phrases really work and which don't. When you provide feedback on a poem think about how you would like feedback delivered to you on your poem. How do I leave the Workshop? In order to no longer receive LPVW emails, you must unsubscribe from the mailing list. To do this simply send an email to [masked] asking to be unsubscribed and one of the list managers will take care of it.

  • Sharing Creativity: Poetry Critique Workshop
    Please join our poetry critique group. We meet to review our poems, provide constructive feedback and spend a creative evening together. After you RSVP, send one or two poems to the organizer via email by the end of Monday before the workshop. Tuesday morning the organizer compiles the poems into a Microsoft Word document and distributes it to the participants. Please spend some quality time reviewing the submitted poems so you can provide feedback. Don't shortchange your fellow poets. Since we sometimes can't cover all poems in one session, have some written feedback to give to the poet. Let's work together to improve our poems. We have the room from 6:30pm so come early and hang out with other poets. We start the workshop at 7pm sharp.

  • Poetry Brunch
    Having a lazy breakfast at Panera, enjoying a break before or after the errands while chatting and reading poetry is my kind of Saturday morning. When it's warm we will sit outside. I will be there from 10 AM to roughly 12:00 PM, noon. Please join me - even if you are coming later! - for a poetic breakfast!
