Next meeting is Sept. 21

The next meeting of the North Shore Poets’ Forum is Saturday, Sept. 21, 11 a.m., at the Beverly Public Library. We have to set up our agenda, so please come prepared to volunteer to prepare a program.

For the first meeting, too, I hope you will bring a poem or two by a different poet (not yourself) to read. Then we’d like to hear what you admire about this poet/poem.
New this year: If you bring a poem of your own that you want to share, please bring six or seven copies so that we can gently critique it. This is in the longstanding tradition of the poets’ forum that we all need feedback, that there is always more to learn, and that we humbly realize we need help to become better poets.

I look forward to seeing you next month.

One thought on “Next meeting is Sept. 21

  1. Your idea is a great way to learn of different poets and get insight on the person who chose the poem/poet. It’s a big help to have a copy of the members’ original poems to critique.
    Good to share hugs at Raymond Maes’ wake. Am sure everyone extends his/her best wishes to Jeanette (and her family) in their loss.
