The Watering Hole invests in pursuing the craft of poetry. We are a home where poets of color in the South can learn and grow at each others’ feet. As a multiethnic, intergenerational, intersectional Tribe, we meet poets at every level from Slam to Ph.D to beginner,  from Gwendolyn Brooks scholar to Kendrick Lamar aficionado,  from retiree to elementary school student.
