Poetry MeetUp

Can't get enough of poetry get-togethers?
We stumbled on a free organization (yes,
they do offer a "Premium" membership
for a fee!) called MeetUp that facilitates
meetings around the world on just about
any topic imaginable.

Poetry meetings take place on the 3rd
Wednesday of every month at locations
voted on by members.

The August meeting didn't produce enough
RSVPs to warrant an official meeting.
MeetUp encourages members to get together
anyway, so I stopped in at Cibon's in August
and met with other Meetup members....from the
French group! As the new Organizer
for the Rochester Poetry Meetup, when enough
RSVPs failed to materialize for September,
I cancelled the meeting.

We've got 43 members at the moment. Check out
Poetry MeetUp at:

Next meeting, Wednesday, December 15, 7 pm
Panera Bread, Hylan Drive, Henrietta
