Poets and Dreamers
According to the owner and organizer, Anne Tammel, Poets and Dreamers was started in Southern California following Tammel’s visit to Venice, Italy in 2001. On her visit, she “found two small Pulcinella statuettes. One is playing a string instrument and the other sits dreaming and looking up to the sky. I decided to call these Pulcinellas the Poets and the Dreamers.” Noticing little support for writers in the area, Tammel was invited to start the group and encourages all types of writers to come together to collaborate. Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge. To find out about future meetings, sign up on the meetup website to stay up to date. The main goal is “to support thriving groups that work together wisely, positively and productively through the process of completion, revision and publication,” Tammel said.
