Southeastern Minnesota Poets

Southeastern Minnesota Poets of Rochester, Minnesota (SEMNP) meet on the fourth Friday of every month from 6:30 until 8:30 PM at Assisi Heights. We now also sponsor a casual daytime meeting the second Tuesday of each month from 2:00 until 3:30 PM at St. James Coffee Shop. We welcome poets of all ages and stages in their writing careers.

Friday meetings include a short educational segment with occasional guest speakers, and read-around with discussion and optional critique. Tuesday meetings are reserved solely for sharing and discussing poems.

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.
