2019  Spring Meeting

This year’s Spring Meeting coincides with the Kalamazoo Poetry Festival! What a great time to make a weekend get-a-way if you can. We will be meeting at the downtown Kalamazoo Public Library on the corner of South and Rose Streets, Saturday, April 13th, at our usual time (registration and coffee beginning at 9 a.m.—when the library opens—with business to begin at 9:30). Our guest poet for the day is PSM member Dennis Hinrichsen, poet laureate of Lansing. He will do a tiny reading to acquaint you with his work and then lead a writing workshop.

If you are planning to attend please send your meeting registration of $25 by April 8th to:
