The first rule of Poetry Club…is that you talk about it
I’ve been running a Meetup called The Great Yellow Rose in Your Brain for about two years. I inherited the group from someone who got us off to a great start but then had her life explode. The group attendance eventually slowed to a crawl, despite attempts at various ways to get folks involved, and I was all set to shut it down when marvelous happenstance inspired me.
I was looking for information on another writer’s group that I’d heard met at the Marilyn J. Praisner Library in Burtonsville, MD, not far from me. Upon investigation, I found out that the woman running that group had retired and they didn’t meet anymore. I also learned that their small meeting room, which usually had a rental fee, would be free if the library was sponsoring the event. Aha! So the Great Yellow Rose is morphing and melding into the Poetry Club, which begins meeting this Wednesday, May 27, 2015, and will meet the fourth Wednesday of the month. We’re meeting at 7:00 pm, which hopefully gives folks a chance to get there after work. Since the Poetry Club is listed on the library’s website and the GYRIYB Meetup page points to it, I hope to have a lot of folks show up to share the fun.
