View Full Version : Poetry Writing Group (will it work?)

12-11-2012, 07:28 PM
I know there is a poetry critique group on here, and it works well with all the support on here. But can it work in a real time group setting? I.E. other such fiction writing critique groups. Is there any reason you can think of that a real world setting wouldn't work? Would speaking the poem just out loud and not passing out a written copy work? Do you think people will respond to writing assignments given on the day of the meeting due for the next meeting, that will emulate a famous poet?

Weigh in please, because I intend on starting the meetup soon.

Absolutely! I would suggest you contact your local writers club, if you have one, or your local library or literary society about find a poetry critique group. I believe our club has a poetry critique group, but I'm no sure.

You would just run it like any critique group: bring copies of poems, have them critique for next meeting, and at the next meeting your read your poem and they critique.
