Heartland Poets, an area chapter of the League of Minnesota Poets, will meet for their regular monthly meeting from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, in the large room of the Brainerd Public Library.

After sharing favorite, discovered and/or published poems at the podium, poets will discuss upcoming events. The League of Minnesota Poets spring meeting will be April 18-19 in Rochester.

Then poets will share poems-in-progress, handing out copies to those present. In this way, all can best appreciate the effort made by the poet in creating the poem.

This meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
