The Bad Poetry Drinking Group

poems need people

& people need poems

drinks need glasses

to feel at hoem

An online group for sharing original poetry in a safe and supportive community. Created during the pandemic lockdown as a way to stay creative and connected - and lift our spirits - through making and sharing our amateur home-made poems. The group accepts anyone who adheres to the rules of respect that help keep us feeling safe in the vulnerable practice of revealing our tender poetic selves. 

We put the 'am' back in amateur. As in, I 'am' writing a poem.

“Dancing into my future:

How I learned, at 50,

to embrace becoming

an 'older' dancer.”
