In Phoenix/Scottsdale,AZ, there is a fantastic group meeting on Thurday evenings at the Scottsdale Center For the Arts named Mother's Who Write, www.motherswhowrite.com. The prompts are typically memoir but the writer may write in any form, including poetry. Honest yet compassionate critique follows the writers reading of their work.
