When we gather to write.

In my writing circles we focus on listening. We listen to the poems being read out loud and we listen to each other. I never thought this specific, close listening would work online. I have been happily surprised. My writing circles have been gatherings of authentic reflection, heartfelt sharing and generated connection between people who have never met before. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to write with new people across the U.S. Each of us who joins the circle is embracing the slowing down that poetry offers. We are taking time to hear one another. And when we are heard, we are seen. I think this is more important than ever.

I would love to write with you, to hear your words as they come forth in the safe space of the writing circle. Click on the links below to register.

  1. Always love your poetry and so happy to know about your group! I too currently participate in a poetry circle, and there is something so special about reading and listening to poetry read aloud – the effects I like to believe is also physiological 🙂

    1. Thanks for sharing. If you are open to the idea, I would really like to hear about your experience of attending a poetry circle. There are many different approaches. Your writing has always resonated with me. I will check your blog to see if I can send you an email. Otherwise you could email me at alig97210@gmail.com. Thanks for reading my poems and taking time to leave me a message. Peace to you.
