Event Details

Every Other Tuesday, 10:00 AM till 12:00 PM

This is an informal creative gathering of poets and would-be poets, professional and amateur. All adult age groups are welcome. Steady participation is not required but encouraged. People who attend must bring in an original poem to each meeting to read aloud and discuss afterward for group responses.

Copies of the poem you bring should be made to share with others in attendance. Everyone gets their turn. This is a group to help inspire and refine one's skills in the art of poetry. Many modes of composition, meter, theme and mood are explored. Meetings will usually take place in the Small Meeting Room, but occasionally will meet in the library's Study Area beyond the nonfiction stacks. The group also periodically does public readings of their poetry at the public library as well.
