I had the good fortune to find out about the North Florida Poetry Hub this year.  Being a member of this chapter has brightened up a difficult year.  Our chapter president offered a warm welcome to me, and then to two poet friends of mine.  The online zoom meetings give us a chance to share our writings and hear others do the same.  Guest speakers encourage us to keep creating and sharing.  ~ Sally Wahl-Constain


North Florida Poetry Hub has given me a purpose in life. I was looking for a local chapter of the Florida State Poets Association to join, and when Steffani Fletcher of Hope At Hand organized North Florida Poetry Hub I signed up under her charter right away! Since then it has been a wonderful four years of continued personal and professional growth. I enjoy working with all the awesome people involved in this great organization from State to the local levels and have made many great friends along the way. ~ Ruth Van Alstine, Jacksonville, Florida


The North Florida Poetry Hub has rekindled my love for poetry again! I continue to learn new things from each workshop and meeting. Ruth Van Alstine, President, has a real love for the craft and her expertise spills over to all who are involved. I am so happy to be a part of North Florida Poetry Hub and I am looking forward to the next meeting!

"The NFPH gatherings have given me the impetus to experiment in a variety of different writing styles, especially in these most un-motivating of times!. The friendly but honest feedback is welcome and useful. I will soon become a member." -- Chris Kastle, St Augustine, Florida


"North Florida Poetry Hub is a great resource for writers and poetry lovers of all kinds.  They offer a variety of workshops to enhance your skills and offer a friendly, supportive atmosphere for both new and experienced authors.  Kudos to Ruth - The Florida Poetry Fairy - and her partners for all they do to advance the art of poetry throughout our local communities."   ~ Loretta M. Leto, Poet and PAM Jam Coordinator
