PEN/INSULA POETRY:

WHERE MICH/IGAN POETRY LIVES 

Inspired by the crash-community of Covid-19 and the erosion of proximity, In March 2021, I created this site as a labor of love—to bring Michigan poetry together into one place. I hope PEN/INSULA POETRY will be a hub. A headquarters. A hall. A pub. A space. A virtual place for fans of Michigan poetry to see where poetry is happening all across the mitten. And a place for poets to connect and convene.

HOW TO USE THIS SITE: 

1. Bookmark it and become a member of the site!

2. Share a link to the page, and post about it! 

3. Send me your Michigan poetry resource and event news--so I can announce it on the Peninsula Poetry Facebook Page!

4. Use the Po/Fo (Poetry Forum) page to post your own news of readings, published poems and books, or to ask questions of other writers. 

5. Follow us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with all the poetry happenings across the mitten state! 

Yours, in poetry, in Michigan—and everywhere—
