What we’re about
Calling all poetry people!
North Florida Poetry Hub is hosted by the charity https://www.hopeathand.org/ and is sponsored by the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, the City of Jacksonville, the Community Foundation, the Cummer Family Foundation, the Delores Barr Weaver Fund and the Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation.
Hope at Hand offers different ways to explore poetry. Hope at Hand's community mission is to provide poetry lessons for at-risk youth, but our MeetUps are for anyone in North Florida who has a love of words.

- Open Forum WorkshopLink visible for attendees
This workshop is open to any form of writing: fiction, poetry, diary, essay, play, stand-up comedy, rap, speech, etc. We offer a forum for the writer to be heard and, if desired, receive feedback. It is suggested that writers bring no more than 1 page so that we can get to everyone’s work. Any genre or style of writing is welcome, from the mainstream to the avant-garde.
The craft does not have to be a solitary pursuit. Come share your words with others and feel yourself a part of a community! Your words matter! Laid-back atmosphere, this is a relaxing evening of sharing and being with like-minded people.
Everyone is welcome! RSVP is required to attend this event. Your RSVP name must match Your ZOOM ID name to be admitted to the Zoom room. Thank you.
