Meeting Location and Group Size
The Advanced Poetry Writers Group is a creative writing workshop that concentrates on preparing poetry for submission. The group is a small, intimate group of poets that range anywhere from 5 to 12 people in a group. We hold all our groups in private residences, and to protect the privacy of our group leaders, we do not post their addresses on our site. After you sign up, we will send you an e-mail with the exact group location.
How the Advanced Poetry Workshop Works
This group is a group that specifically concentrates on preparing poems for submission. Sometimes we will do creative writing exercises to help create new poems and stretch those poetic muscles. This is a safe environment to read your work and to get critical feedback and critique from your fellow group members and the group leader on any work in progress you choose to bring in.
Our Writers Group Leaders
This group is moderated by a professional writer with credentials and experience in publishing, writing, and giving a professional critique on poetry. We screen and pay our group leaders and only hire those who have the kind of supportive passion and experience that our groups need.
Who can join?
This group is open to poets. All poets must submit work in order to join the group. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been published or not, only that you are of a certain level in your poetic writing. Once we screen your writing samples, we will email you to let you know if you have qualified with a link to pay for the group. We encourage you to apply even if you think you may not be qualified. Don’t underestimate yourself!
