“The Poets’ Group is an informal (until we agree on the T-shirt design) group of women who meet sporadically (every three weeks) to write and read what we’ve written. Our various work lives (and writing itself) can be isolated endeavors, and our group provides collegiality and common ground. During our meetings, we check in—about work, writing, and life—read, and write; we encourage each other’s projects and edit each other’s lines.”   –Monica A. Hand
