The meetings last about two hours. Short poetry is the most common genre, but any genre is welcome—short stories, short plays, and five-minute excerpts of longer works are often brought to workshop. Please bring enough copies of your work for members to comment upon. We have anywhere from eight to fifteen participants per meeting. There is no commitment from month to month, and the workshop is free and open to the public.

Food and Drink – Public Welcome!
All things far away are worthy of meditation, say the authors of Tucumcari, a travel journal tracing the crazy routes backwards from hometowns to westward visions of an alternate life. Presented in essay, poems and four unabashed interviews, public & private demons, as well as decisions made in a family’s past that alter the course of our lives.
