who we are

We are a group of poets interested in creating community

by connecting audiences to poetry in meaningful and playful ways

that surprise, move, and delight 

(and that don't make anyone feel stupid or bored to tears) 


what we do

We start with one of our poets' poems, randomly selected poems by the audience, 

and we improvise the reading, poem by poem, through audience suggestion,  

following different threads, juxtapositions, themes, & connections,

until we come to an ending.

We don't know where we are headed and neither do you! We find our way together. 

At the end of the reading we make a poem (called a cento) using the connecting lines from the poems read and that's the poem the audience has created!
