Ochre Coast Poets

Named for the cliffs of the mid south coast beaches, Ochre Coast Poets is a critiquing group of experienced and lesser experienced poets, meeting monthly at Seaford Library. It is presently closed to further members in order to provide quality critiquing within the 2½ hour meeting time. There is a short waiting list.

It cooperates with Friendly Street Poets by hosting an annual open mic night to give local poets an opportunity to submit to the Anthology.

Format:  As a critique group, we engage in a constructive process of analysis and discussion in order to learn more about the art and craft of poetry and improve our work. Do not fear, we look after newbies and those who are unfamiliar with the art of critique, which, BTW, never means criticism! Please bring at least 6 copies of your work.
