POETS IN THE PARK
Gather to share imagery, whispers, and thought.
Poets in the Park was established in the beginning years of the Writers Foundation (WFSC) around 2005. It ran for a few years with active members sharing their poetry at business lunches, libraries, and coffee shops. One of our late members, one of the original founders, and poetry event host, CONSORCIA LEONARDO MENDOZA was a focal point for Poets in the Park. She passed away in November of 2009 and the group disbanded shortly after. More recently, with the influx of refreshed and inspired poetry writers joining our group, Guy Chambers and Pamela Beattie have graciously stepped up to continue the legacy.
The thing about writing... it stays with us for a lifetime. You can read more about our 'In Memoriam' members <HERE>. Just like Consorcia's words will live with us always, we want to provide connection so our words can do the same.
Poets in the Park meets on the third Wednesday of every month online. Open to WFSC members and non-members, it is a welcoming group to share your prose, gather muse, or listen to spoken art. As Covid regulations lessen and we can return to more in-person events, we hope to see poetry readings, smiling faces, and more legacies born.
See you soon! And keep on writing!
