The poetry group I’ve been in for over a year, Lead Us Ink, has a book available! It’s entitled Poetic Musings, and if anyone is interested in it, please contact me; I can distribute the donations to the group to promote collaborations like this one in the future.
Thank you to all of the talented poets/artists in the group, including Scott Helmes who put the book together, Melanie Hill for the piece featured on the cover, and Crystal Cohen for inspiring people to join in the first place. We had an open mic performance at Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe in 2015, and hope to put on another one.
We regularly meet to experience a reprieve from the world, calm ourselves with words, laugh at the irony of life, and be rejuvenated. I’m very grateful to have that to be able to go to each week, and am proud of us for pulling off the joint effort! Anyone (as long as you’re not a psychopath/sociopath :)) is welcome to come. That is part of the beauty of our group. We are welcoming to those who just like to express through the written word. It’s therapeutic ♥.
