Maren Mitchell is a well-published poet who is now holding a poetry group that meets monthly at the library in Young Harris. I have heard much praise from those attending. Maren is giving extra time to assist poets with publishing tips.  As many as twelve or thirteen people are joining this group on the third Monday of the month.
