Welcome

…to the River City Poets’ home page! Here you’ll find listings of our events, workshops, and  other programming updates, as well as more info about us & our community. Feel free to look around!

The state of Virginia is currently shut down due to COVID-19, and all our events are therefore on hiatus for now. We’ll be posting updates here when it’s safe to be out in numbers again, so check back for forthcoming events.

While we can’t get together in person, we’ve shifted our gatherings to virtual mode! Our weekly online critiques are continuing through the month of May–email if you’d like to get in on the feedback action. We’re also continuing our pre-critique social hour this month, so come say hello! Also, this May marks the ninth anniversary of poetry at our downtown hotspot C’est Le Vin. While we can’t be there personally, we’re holding a virtual Poetry and Jazz night on May 7th to celebrate–it would be great to see you!

Meanwhile, keep in touch and keep writing! We’ll get through this yet.
