CLOSED: A Melody of Poetry

EDIT: August 2022

A Melody of Poetry is on indefinite hiatus. It is unclear as of 8/12/22 if the group will reconvene. This will largely be due to future committed requests to join. 

As of this date, I also will not be moderating the group. 



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

A Melody of Poetry is a weekly poetry group. Every Sunday from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm EST.  While the main focus is on the poetry we produce, there will be evenings with Guest Poets, the occasional Poetry Slam (w/prizes!), Themed evenings (i.e., Women's History Month), and some surprises. 

It is up to you if you'd like to share your work or want to be part of the audience. There is no pressure. You are encouraged to take your spot, but it remains within your comfort level.

There isn't any censorship; we only request that sensitive subjects triggering (rape, suicide, excessive gore/violence, etc.) are first introduced to give members a choice to stay or mute that part of the session.

This group is an open, friendly, and safe space. We will not tolerate any issues of disrespect, harassment, or sexual overtures to another member.
