Poetry Reading SIG
Do you love poetry or do you want to learn about poetry? If so, join our Poetry Reading SIG which meets via Zoom every first Thursday of the month from 6:15-8:00pm.
The format of our meetings is flexible and we decide in advance on a topic and facilitator for each meeting. The topic might range from the oeuvre of a particular poet to a particular style of poetry or a particular period of poetry. Each participant is encouraged to submit one or two poems to be read aloud at the meeting. The facilitator provides an introduction to the topic and determines the order in which the poems are read.
Due to its popularity, this SIG is currently NOT ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS.
Please contact Susan Wurtzburg for for further information about this SIG or if you would like to be added to a waiting list.
