About Us


The Peoria Poetry Club was founded in 1941 by a diligent group of five who shared a craft, a vision, and a goal.  The principles set forth by that pioneer group remain in place today as members share the craft of poetry; the vision of learning while encouraging others; and the goal of inspiring poetry and prose that captures and holds the imaginations of its readers.


The Peoria Poetry Club meets the second Saturday of each month at 12:00pm. Meeting are located at the Riverview Senior Living Community, 500 Centennial Dr., East Peoria.
