Poets from our local group the Dixie Chapter of the Utah State Poetry Society: 1st row-Barbara, Marilyn, 2nd row-Lin, Gary, Kate, Markay and Marleen. Others not shown: Alma, LaVerna, Nad, and Marie. We all had poems selected to be in Panorama 2011-a statewide publication. There is a total of 61 poets from throughout the state of Utah with poetry in this year's anthology and 11 or about 1/6 are from our area. Pretty good representation-it's a talented group of individuals. We meet twice a month for a lesson on poetry and critiques to improve our poems. An invaluable and creative resource in my life as a poet and writer. Barbara and I are co-presidents of the organization.
