What we're about
Looking for other new and/or seasoned poetry writers to hang with? We are located in and around Trenton, Michigan, 48183, and are just getting started here, so it will take a bit of time to get things rolling, but basically... if you write poetry or would like to start writing poetry and are looking for a friendly group that will help and encourage you along the way, then come join us. I will be adding more to this description as I work out the kinks. Please be patient with me, together we can build a great group of poetry writers... after all, We are "The Write Poetry Group"
This group is open to writers of other genre, if you write, and would like to share your writing and contribute your knowledge to different types of writing, please join us, I would love your input.
Members are asked to be kind, be honest and be fair! When you are critiquing another persons work, it is not about the Writer... it is about what was written. And for those members who have chosen to have their work critiqued... REMEMBER - when someone makes corrections, additions or omissions to your poetry, be OPEN minded, it is not about YOU personally! They MAY be critiquing according to their idea of how THEY would have written that poem… through 'their' eyes, not yours, so unless you really agree with them, you are not expected to change anything in your work. If you love it the way it is… excellent! But if they can give you something constructive that you can use or learn from... ALSO excellent!
I attended 5 different meetings before I realized this lesson about my work being critiqued, now I have no problem with accepting anything that was said about my work. Water off a ducks back!
