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.

Easter Sunday Mesa-top Meditation & Ceremony


Dear World Family, WORLD WHEEL CENTER 95 Horny Toad Road Cerrillos, NM 87010 v Easter Sunday Mesa-top Meditation & Ceremony April 21, at 2 PM Please join us for the Easter Sunday meditation and ceremony. Spring is trying to show her face. Santa Fe is filled with fruit tree blossoms and we can feel new life stirring in ourselves, a resurrection of new energy. From this platform of beauty let us embrace endless possibilities. This is an opportunity to let our hearts fill with understanding and compassion to be sent into our world. You are welcome to bring guest(s) to join us on Sunday, April 21st at 2 PM for our mesa-top Yurt gathering. Peter Gold will be playing his Global Fusion music at the close of the meditation. You are also welcome to contribute your own prayers, music, poetry and art that can resonate with the budding beauty of theses days and can raise our spirits to the understanding of the interconnection of all life. Bring finger food offerings, if you wish, or drinks to share with us. You are welcome to stay afterwards to enjoy the views of our sacred mountains or take a walk on the land to our earth wheel. Global Family, please join us in meditation at 2 PM from your own countries and locations. The more we can join together in the spirit of love, the more understanding can infiltrate into the lives of our brothers and sisters and leaders world wide. Embracing each one of you, Vijali Please email me to RSVP. I have attached a map for directions to the land and also this flier. Note that we don’t have wi-fi on the land so if you need to contact me Saturday or Sunday, please call or text me on my cell phone. Also contact me if you don’t have a high-clearance car and need a ride because of the steep and rocky road going up to the mesa.
