Mad Poets are students and senior citizens, at all levels of accomplishment, from those just finding and developing their poetic voice to published award-winning poets. It is a warm group of friends sharing a love of festivals: We have presented readings at the opening of I-476, the "Blue Route's Tour deBlue" Celebration, and at the courthouse steps for several consecutive Veteran's Day celebrations, to name a few past events. We have also secured a Proclamation from former Media Mayor Frank Daly proclaiming March as poetry month in Media.
Our quarterly newsletters offer the most comprehensive listing of poetry events available anywhere. Newsletters come out in spring, summer, fall and winter, and are sent to members only.
The Mad Poets Society’s business/social meetings are held quarterly at a time and location to be announced. The first hour covers treasury info, project info, planning, fundraising and club business; the second hour is for reading original poetry, critique (if desired) and socializing and camaraderie. (Prospective members may attend one meeting, meetings are for members only). Please contact us if you are attending a meeting, if you are not a member, in case of last minute changes or cancellations.
