It’s a joy of a journey to read. —Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, ColoradoWestern Slope Poet Laureate Emeritus Op Cit Books DeVargas Mall Santa Fe, NM[masked]

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.
