What are you hoping to get out of joining this group?

Apart from meeting fellow aspiring poets, I'm looking forward to getting to discuss poetry and learn from others. Workshopping is a fantastic tool for writers, and since being out of school I've greatly missed that invigorating environment. I'm hoping this will be an opportunity to establish a creative, helpfully critical and inspiring environment for myself and other writers.

What would you like to do in this group? Ideas welcome!

The first poem I recollect writing is a Father's Day poem in which one line read "you're a great human bean". Though I know the difference between 'bean' and 'being' now, I'm still learning every day about what words can do, the beauty of writing.
