Wednesday 17.3 at 6pm: Writing group for poets at Arkadia

 Dear friend of Arkadia, There is a special meeting at the bookshop Wednesday 17.3 at 6pm! Are you a poet in the broadest sense of the word? Are you interested in further refining and experimenting with how you write, present, and perform your work? Are you looking to establish yourself as a poet? Then would you like to join us in being part of a new writing group? We aim: • To create a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere of like-minded writers • To develop ourselves as writers and in the presentation and performance of our writing through working with each other and hone our craft towards a standard the public wants to read and hear • To invite guest speakers and coaches to give us insight and additional training in how to accomplish these goals • To explore the capabilities and strength of the group • To make a meaningful contribution to the literary and art scene here in Helsinki and, possibly, beyond through public readings and other traditional and cutting edge methods that may include collaborating with artists of all types The first meeting will be held in Arkadia bookshop Pohjoinen Hesperiankatu 9 on March 17th at 6pm If you’d like to be involved please RSVP to Lmtduffy@gmail.com as there is interest and space will be limited.
