poetry, poetics and revision
Thirteen Blackbirds is the online equivalent to the poetry group that meets every fortnight in the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area. At the meetings, we bring along poetry (usually assignments from the previous meeting), read works of published authors, and talk about why poetry interests, moves and excites us.

The emphasis of the community will be on providing quality feedback to members' poems. Fly-by crits are better than none at all, but we all have a chance of deeply influencing the trajectory of a poem. Also, feedback naturally encourages revision, and revision is the tool by which poems become great.

Come on in. Make yourself comfortable. Just be respectable about the place. No shoes on the table.
