extra credit for longevity
September 25, 2015
A lot of poets (present company included) value the witnessing and feedback they get from participating in a poetry writing group. Hats off to the Poetry Scribes of Spokane, who have been meeting since 1937!
Between September and June, the group meets from 1:00 to 3:00pm on the first Wednesday of the month at the North Spokane Library on Hawthorne Road. The October 7 meeting will feature a reception for the Amy Woodward Fisher World Day of Poetry, an annual contest sponsored by the Scribes.
In addition to participation in the Spokane Lilac Festival each year, the Scribes publish an annual collection of member poetry, The Turquoise Lanterns.
