Supporting Poetry in Northwest Indiana

North West Indiana Poetry Society
presents poetry in most all varieties
from sonneteers to sestina stanzas
some are sung like Mario Lonza’s
We meet in Lowell on Saturday three
in a meeting room, Lowell Library
amateur or pro, the poems are good to know
with bumps in some, fast or slow, though most do flow
In the morning, ten a.m. bright and shining
each poet reads a poem their taste inclining
a critique if wanted say yes or no
suggest a word, out of place or doesn’t go
Poetry in rhythmic beats or rhyme replete
Socialize, meet and greet is a real treat

The Lowell Public Library is located at 1505 West Commercial Avenue in Lowell, Indiana. Tom Spencer has provided the following additional information for anyone who wants to read at a meeting:
An original poem or one from a favored poet is welcome. We ask that the poem be no longer than two pages to give time for all to read. A portion of an epic poem may be read, however no more than two pages at a single session.  To be fair to all, compose in Times New Roman size twelve font. We try to end each session at 11:30 a.m.
