What we're about

A traveling poetry writing workshop that meets in various bars, coffee shops, and other locations around the Chicago suburbs. We write together, critique each other's work, and discuss poetic practice. Writing poetry is usually a solitary activity, but poets can benefit from a writing community. Join us for an informal, fun, and educational afternoon while you eat, drink, and draft a new poem.
