Poetry West hosts monthly workshops (usually on the first Saturday), critique sessions designed to improve writing skills, and occasional poetry readings. Our goal is to provide a forum where people who enjoy writing, reading, and listening to poetry can come together to share this common interest. Our workshops are open to the public, as are our poetry salons. And, since we are a nonprofit organization, membership is tax deductible. If you're interested in poetry and in meeting others in the area who share that interest, come join us at our workshops and readings.
