About the Poetry Group

Feel free to invite friends to join us. We are an intimate, informal group that enjoys sharing poetry with others in our surrounding communities. Hope to see you there!

The first half of the monthly meeting is devoted to a reading by a featured poet from the group or by a published poet. The second half hour allows open mike time for group members to share a few poems they've written, or they may choose to read poems written by their favorite poets.  In the future, we may include poetry workshops to the group's activities.  If you are interested in sharing a collection of poems, please email Lynn at lynn.fanok@gmail.com .

The meeting will be facilitated by Lynn Fanok, who has written a collection of poems about her experiences as a survivor’s daughter examining her family, memory, and history. Her poetry has appeared in Burnt Bridge and other journals. Lynn holds degrees in English from The Pennsylvania State University and Arcadia University. You'll find some of her poetry at lynnfanok.weebly.com.

 All are invited and welcome to join us!
