A Melody of Poetry

If you are a writer of/lover of poetry, A Melody of Poetry is for you. 

Poetry is melodic, sharp, uplifting, painful, cathartic, lyrical, revolutionary; it speaks of love, anger, betrayal, death, life, written/spoken/spit in a myriad of forms.  From rhyming patterns to free verse, A Melody of Poetry embraces it all. 

We meet every Sunday evening from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm, EST. This is open to anyone around this globe as long as the time zone works for you. Sharing and discussions of self-written work are the main points of our evenings. Themed evenings(i.e. Women's History Month; Black History Month; etc), Workshops, and Guest Artists are events we celebrate. Check out our calendar for all special evenings.

A Prompting of Writers: Your Challenge to Imagine

A Prompting of Writers is not your average prompt writing group. 

Two prompts a session, challenges inherent in both. You will be asked to write in a different genre, &/or tackle a style of prose or poetry that is outside of your comfort zone. We write, share, and give constructive feedback.

The idea is to hone your writing skills while having FUN! 

We meet every Saturday online, 10:00 am to Noon, EST. There are members across the US and beyond. We have a great group of regulars and are always looking to add new members. If you make the Time Zone work for you: WELCOME!
