By design, Common Threads seeks to reach people who are not particularly familiar or comfortable with poetry, asking them to not only discuss the poems in Common Threads, but to consider leading those discussions in their communities and work places, such as libraries, senior centers, churches, and more. To lessen the intimidation factor (and increase the comfort factor) for those organizing the discussion of something they may not be an expert at, we are asking that poets who are interested in lending a few hours to the program might consider partnering up with discussion group leaders who request it. 

Partnering Poets will be listed on our website.
