The Pole Barn Poets writing group is a new addition to the vibrant menu of existing Foundation writing groups. We are a ‘sister group’ of the Porch Poets with a similar goal to support the mission of the Foundation and provide accomplished and aspiring poets a venue to share their work, improve their craft, and enjoy the opportunities provided by the Foundation for reaching the broader community.

Due to low attendance in the summer and early fall, the Pole Barn Poets and Porch Poets will combine their monthly meetings. Both groups will meet on the second Saturday of every month from 10 am – 12 pm and the fourth Thursday of every month from 5:30 pm 7:30 pm at the Writing Center, located at 1914 14th Ave in Vero Beach.

If you are interested in finding out more about our group, please call us at 772-569-6718, email us at, or fill out the interest form.

Please note: participation in our writing groups requires membership in LRJF (Currently $50 a year for individuals and $75 for households). Register for membership here.
