poem – the website: redux


Last year, Carolee and I decided if we couldn’t get enough poetry pals together in real life to discuss poetry, maybe we’d try a virtual poetry group.  This is how poem was born. 

It was a great time.  Each month, we worked week by week with a poem by an established poet.    First we read and discussed.  Next, we worked on our own poems “in the style of” or inspired by the poem, then we took some time to comment/critique each other’s work.  The last week is always a free-for-all, you never know what might happen.  This time around, we’re hoping maybe, just maybe, our poets-in-residence will grant us an interview!

Well, we took a summer break.  That break extended into the fall, and on into winter… but now we’re back!

Join us this Sunday as we begin a month long discussion/examination/effort to imitate be inspired by a very cool poem by Denise Duhamel.  You’ll have to stop by to find out which poem!

Oh, and if you’d like to be an honorary member (no secret decoder rings, sorry!), just send an email (jillypoet@verizon.net) with your web site/blog address.  Can’t wait to poem with you!
