The Squirrel Hill Poetry Workshop is a writing group established by
Sue Saniel Elkind in 1977 at the Squirrel Hill Library, a community
branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
The group meets every two weeks for two hours. Each members brings a
piece of poetry and that piece is "workshopped" during the two hour
session.
The Workshop has published two anthologies:
THE FIRST DECADE in 1988, and
PITTSBURGH AND TRI-STATE AREA POETS in 1992.
This is our first effort at going online. Common Knowledge: Pittsburgh -
a network project of the Pittsburgh Public Schools - is providing an
Internet forum for the Squirrel Hill Poetry Workshop.
Each member of the Workshop submitted five poems for this first online
collection.
This collection is a work-in-progress.
