Do you write poetry? Are you looking for some like-minded people to get together for poetry critiquing/workshops/writing exercises/discussion? I'm hoping to find a group of people who write poetry and are interested in meeting to discuss their own work, and potentially that of others and possibly to have occassional workshops with published poets for ideas/inspiration.
This is a new group, so the format and content is quite flexible, depending on what people want to do. I was thinking of meeting on a monthly basis, somewhere in North Auckland (North Shore/Hibiscus Coast etc, possibly rotating). I have been involved in poetry critiquing groups and various workshops in the UK, before moving back to NZ a couple of years ago, and miss it, so thought I'd see if I can get something going here.
There is no requirement to be published, or to reach any particular standard, just to be open to share your work and consider that of others, and to be supportive, positive and constructive in critiquing. It would be great to get something going!
Once the group has some members, we can look at the best time etc. for the first meet up.
First meetup cancelled due to low attendance. I will schedule another in late July/early August to see if there is more interest then. Any feedback on what would make a meetup more convenient for people (time, location, etc.), don't hesitate to let me know.
