Poets and Lovers of Poetry
SMPS is a part of community events like Image and the Word, Eisteddfod and the Mankato Poetry Walk and Ride and we encourage all poetry going on in our area - Good Thunder Reading Series at MSU, Big Deal Open Poetry at the Coffee Hag and more.
You are welcome to any SMPS event. Most events are free. You can bring your own poems and share if you want to or just come listen to others.
Poetry LIVE - Fourth Thursdays
Featured readings by one or two poets, sometimes accompanied with live music. An open-mike reading follows the performance. Bring your favorites! The fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Emy Frentz Guild.
Lunch and Poetry – SMPS Meetings
YOU are invited to our SMPS meetings on the second Saturday of each month at 12:30 (bring your lunch)
Agenda: Eat, speaker or panel talking about poetry, sharing of poems, critique workshops or other fun poetry-related activities.
