Introducing "POETS ON THE MOVE"

=============================

Hello people!

Poetry Social is grateful to you all for such love and support in all of our events. Now, we are very excited to share this POETS ON THE MOVE concept with you!

We have been putting our efforts to keep improving and implementing new ideas to keep our poetry sessions interesting and unique, hence we have thought of integrating two beautiful things Traveling and Poetry together!

The concept is simple every alternate month, we will have a poetry session along with some traveling as well, it can be a motorcycle ride, a car drive or even a small trek to hills around Bengaluru etc. We can go to a highway side restaurant for some breakfast and have a poetry session there or even organize a potluck meet up somewhere on the hills and share our poetry too! But, the central point of idea is poetry of course!

Lets get out of the city traffic and breathe some fresh air to inspire us write more! Isn't it great? :)

Please let us know in comments below what you really think about it and keep your suggestions coming, we would love to hear and discuss with you to implement this project in our upcoming events.
