Poetry Reading Circle with Catherine Anderson

We meet at the Writer's Place on the third Monday of the month. The purpose of the Poetry Reading Circle is to come together to read poets of interest to the group and share perspectives. I introduce a little background information on the poet's biography and approach to poetry. We take turns reading the poems and then share our ideas and perspectives in a relaxed atmosphere.  Poets we choose are archived in the Poetry Foundation Web site so that any one can have access to the poems. Please feel free to bring any book or poem of the author we are discussing that you would like to share in addition to the poems on the Poetry Foundation Web site. For August, we will be focusing on the poet Pattiann Rogers.

Riverfront Readings: James Benger, Jeanette Powers, and Angela Penticoff

The Riverfront Readings series of poetry and fiction readings was started in Kansas City, Missouri in 1986 by Philip Miller and Donn Blevins. In those days, the location actually was in the Riverfront area, in the Kansas City Artists Coalition space. Now they are held at The Writers Place and in other Kansas City area locations.
