Get involved with the Creekside poetry group

Members of the Creekside poetry group work on their craft with peers and learn from special guests. Morgan Grayce Willow, an award-winning Loft Literary Center teaching fellow, visited the group this summer. She discussed three short poetry forms: cinquain, tanka and triolet. Participants then applied what they learned and received positive critiques. The group meets the third Wednesday of each month 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Creekside, 9801 Penn Avenue. Join them for the 9th Annual Poetry Contest Reception Saturday, October 13, 2 – 4 p.m. at Civic Plaza, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road, to celebrate and listen to contest winners read their poems aloud.
