1 thought on “February Happenings”

  1. I just joined the state poetry society in January. I would be interested in any groups meeting in the Sioux Falls area that discuss and share poetry or writing? I started
    writing poetry about 3 1/2 years ago out of curiosity and wanting to build vocabulary
    again. I have ten poems ready for the 2017 contest again. Hope someone has some help for me. Thanks, ahead of time. Brian Baumgarn Sioux Falls, SD
