What we're about

Santa Fe has a mind-boggling number of great poets and writers, known and unknown. This group is a venue for them all. It is the central "bulletin board" for Santa Fe's poetry and prose scene.

As a member you'll receive announcements of book launches, workshops, close readings, poetry festivals, ekphrastic events, open mics, and lots of other activities involving poetry and prose.

People are always asking us what is going on around town and Meetup is a great venue to list the events and strengthen the poetry and writing community. If you know of an event that you don't see listed on here, let us know and we'll get it posted.

Hiram Larew’s fourth poetry collection, Undone, was released in 2018 from FootHills Publishing. Nominated for four Pushcarts, his poems have appeared widely and have received first place awards from Louisiana Literature and the washington review.

An advocate for the diversity of poetic talent, his grant-awarded and widely-viewed Poetry Poster Project showcases work of five African American and one Native American poet. And, as a result of his 2019 Writer-in-Residency at Historic Woodlawn Plantation, the Voices of Woodlawn program is showcasing poems by African American poets and Larew as an homage to the enslaved community who lived at Woodlawn. He is retired from USDA where he guided international food security program. He lives in Maryland and is on Facebook at Hiram Larew, Poet

WRITE TO HEAL ONLINE Writing Workshop for Cancer Patients and Survivors

A FREE ONLINE writing workshop based on (but not limited by)
the life-changing diagnosis of cancer.

Led by Joanne Fay Brown. Sponsored by the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico. Underwritten by Stephen & Jane Hochberg.

EIGHT WEEKS: Pick the session you prefer:

ONLINE Tuesdays, March 16 through May 4,[masked]:30 – 3:30 p.m.
ONLINE Thursdays March 18 through May 6,[masked]:00 am - 12 Noon

This group for cancer patients and survivors offers “Expressive Writing” as a way of healing. While writing may not cure, it can heal, according to scientific studies. Especially during this time of great uncertainty and social distancing, writing with others on parallel paths will be our avenue to reclaim our voices, and reconnect with our lives. Everyone is welcome: if you have never written, or if you have always written.

Registration is required. To Register: Please contact Joanne Brown:[masked] or [masked]

Group Facilitator Joanne Fay Brown, MSW, has led Amherst Writers & Artists workshops in Berkeley, Oaxaca, Mexico, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, and Ghost Ranch. She is a cancer survivor and a Master in Social Work.
