If you are a poet serious about improving your craft, then the group can provide you with critical readers who love poetry, understand what it takes to write and submit work to criticism because they are writers themselves, but who are also rigorous and precise in their criticisms and suggestions.
The group meets every Wednesday (except on holidays) beginning at 7 pm and usually meets until 9 pm. The group welcomes all types and levels of poets: beginners and veterans, formalist and free verse, experimental and performance. Currently, the group meets in the outdoor seating area outside the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in downtown Riverside: 3712 Mission Inn Avenue (between Main and Market Streets)
If you wish to workshop your poem, you must bring 12-14 copies of your poem to hand out.
