Members-Only “Reading in the Round” on Zoom

Saturday, February 17, 2024
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon

A reminder will be sent sometime the week before and the Zoom link will be sent to all members a day or two before the reading. Those of us taking part in these events are finding them a really good way to get to know other members of the society as well as to hear the poets speak their own work in their own voices. If you haven’t tried it out yet, we hope you’ll consider doing so.


NEWS OF OUR NEXT MEETING

Our spring in-person meeting will take place at Christ Episcopal Church in Gardiner on May 18. It will be a hybrid meeting so others can join us on Zoom. We’ll be using our own recently purchased OWL. Dennis Camire has agreed to be the judge for the contest and will offer a 45-minute workshop in the afternoon. Dennis is the author of the poetry collection Combed by Crows (Deerbrook Editions) and teaches writing at Central Maine Community College and at the University of Maine, Augusta. The former director of Maine Poetry Central, currently he curates the poetry column, In Verse: Maine Places and People, for The Sun Journal. Details about the members-only contest will be available in the Spring issue of the Stanza, which will reach you (as is our normal pattern) at least a full month before the April 18th contest submission deadline.



The current issue of Strophes is the January 2024 issue (PDF).
