Southeastern Minnesota Poets of Rochester, Minnesota (SEMNP) welcomes poets of all ages and stages in their writing careers. We foster growth, experience, and understanding of the art of poetry through writing, reading, and discussion. For information, email us at or call 507-281-3507.

We have two groups that meet monthly. The daytime group meets to share and discuss poems every second Tuesday of the month from 2:00 until 3:30 PM in the Community Studio at Castle Community at 121 Broadway Avenue North, Rochester, MN

The evening group meets the fourth Friday of each month from 6:15 pm to 8:15 at Dunn Brothers North, 120 Elton Hills Drive NW, 55901. Friday meetings include a short educational segment with occasional guest speakers, and read-around with discussion and optional critique.
