Explore your passion for words and join us as we share poetry, favorite authors, personal stories and how we can make poetry a dynamic part of the community experience.

For those new to the group - the main purpose of the group is to bring in poems we've written, share them with the group and get honest feedback so we can make the poems better. Some people attend so they will be inspired to write more. In order to inspire people, we have weekly topics so folks can be exposed to new and different kinds of poetry. We also have a weekly "prompt" which may inspire or cajole others to write. There is no requirement at all to attend a meeting. Everyone's welcome.
