    The roundtables are critique groups designed to support you as you work on projects and continue developing the craft. Our experienced leaders are published writers who are also actively pursuing their own writing goals. They are committed to helping you reach your writing dreams — big project or small — fiction, nonfiction, plays or poetry.

    Red Oak roundtable groups are appropriate for dedicated writers willing to share their work with a group to receive feedback, share ideas and build a network of writing friends.

    Join other Penmonkeys to talk about the book A Poetry Handbook: A Prose Guide to Understanding and Writing Poetry by Mary Oliver.

    "With passion and wit, Mary Oliver skillfully ... walks readers through exactly how a poem is built, from meter and rhyme, to form and diction, to sound and sense, drawing on poems from Robert Frost, Elizabeth Bishop, and others. This book is an invaluable glimpse into Oliver's prolific mind--a must-have for all poetry lovers."
