May Monthly Poetry Group

Welcome Poets!   Join us for an evening of poetry and discussion on Thu evening, May 11th at 6:00pm (lasts to 7:00pm).  This month we're excited to have Camille Norvaisas.  Camille will be sharing new poems and work from her wonderful book, Rare as the Kotuku.  We hope to see you then! Questions and discussion are always welcome and encouraged.  (Please bring a mask.)  

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 .

The poetry group meeting is facilitated by Lynn Fanok who has written a book of poems, Bread and Fumes (Kelsay Books), about her experiences as the daughter of a WWII labor camp survivor, examining her family, memory, and history. Her poetry has appeared in Painted Bride Quarterly, Schuylkill Valley Journal, Red Wolf Press, Tiny Seed Journal, tiny wren lit, and the poetry anthology, Carry Us to the Next Well. Lynn holds degrees in English from The Pennsylvania State University and Arcadia University. Visit . 


Camille Norvaisas (Nor-vay-sas) lives in Feasterville, and she believes imagery is a funnel by which life’s experiences are filtered into her poetry. This year her poem, “Deism” was hung on the half-wall by the magazine section of the Feasterville Library for the month of April and her poem, “Somnium” was featured in the Facebook, “30 Days of Inspiration,” event created by the Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County. In October her poem, “Morning Glory,” will appear in the Poet’s Corner Section of the Bucks County Herald. Her first book of poetry is titled, “Rare as the Kotuku (Kōtuku).”

 All are invited and welcome to join us!
